    In 1940, Hendrik Roelof de Jong was appointed pastor of the Reformed Church in Venlo. He was co-editor of the illegal newspaper Trouw and a collaborator of the Nationaal Steun Fonds (National Support Fund, a Dutch resistance organization that financed the rest of the resistance) [1]. From September 1943, he arranged foster care in the Venlo region for rescued Jewish children from the crèche across the street from the Hollandsche Schouwburg [2] in Amsterdam. He was duikhoofd (local contact) for Protestants in hiding in northern Limburg. On March 5, 1944, the Sicherheitspolizei raided the pastorate house. De Jong managed to escape through a skylight and went into hiding with an aunt in Amsterdam, where he continued his resistance as usual. Arrested on January 27, 1945 due to the betrayal by a Van Lom. [6] He was executed with seven others on Monday afternoon, February 12, 1945, near the Jan Gijzen bridge in Haarlem, where a gunfight had taken place two days earlier, killing a German field gendarme. (Venlo Registry Office, document 468/1945). Cemetery of honor in Bloemendaal, field 35. [6]
    In Venlo four clergymen paid for their resistance with their lives. On the memorial plaque at the catholic Martinus Church [3] we find the names of three priests of this church and also that of the protestant priest Henk de Jong.
