    Henri Marie Auguste (Guus) Hermans refused to sign the declaration of loyalty which was obligatory for students and therefore had to go to Germany as a forced laborer. But “he was the first in Weert not to return after his weekend vacation. He organized the return of other students to Weert with forged medical certificates and false stamps under extremely difficult circumstances.” (E. Haanen) He became head of the Weert LO district. During the raid in Weert on June 21, 1944, he fell into the hands of the Germans. He died in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp at Oranienburg, about 30 km north of Berlin.
