Het Grote Gebod – L.O.

    Father Petrus Nicolaas Andreas Peters was a member of the L.O. Steyl and vicar. Pastor P.P. Windhausen, himself and three others from Steyl and Tegelen went into hiding in the tower room of the Steyl church and later moved into the basement. There they listened to the BBC programs they typed them to update others on developments on the front lines. The arrival of a German observer, who settled in the tower room, threw a spanner in the works. Their activities came to light. The five eventually ended up in Düsseldorf. Before their deportation to Buchenwald, Kluitmans and two clergymen from Roermond, the Catholic vicar A.J.A. Sars and the Reformed pastor H.Ch.J. Hoogendijk were added to this group. All but two were killed: Windhausen died in Buchenwald on March 28, Peters on April 6, and Hoogendijk on April 10. Kluitmans died in Dachau in April, Sars died in Passau on April 23, and H.J.A. Hovens from Tegelen succumbed to the hardships he had endured in Buchenwald on April 10, 1947. (Cammaert IV, p. 302 [1])
    Petrus Nicolaas Andreas ( Piet ) Peters is listed in the Erelijst 1940-1945 (Honor Roll of the Dutch Parliament). [2]
