Hubertus Selder

 20-04-1923 Roermond      26-12-1944 Elmpt (D) (21)
- People in hiding - Roermond - …

    Carpenter. Belonged to the 14 Roermonders murdered during Christmas 1944, who were shot just across the German border, in order to expel their male townmates between the ages of 16 and 60.
    On the night of December 25-26, 1944, Selder was in hiding under the floor of a classroom at the girls’ school at Schoolpad in Roermond. On the instructions of local resident Dieudonné Verstappen, who had just been arrested for theft, paratroopers found the hiding place. At the trial before a court-martial led by Major Ulrich Matthaeas, Selder and 12 fellow prisoners were sentenced to death on Boxing Day. Selder was shot the next day along with Frans, a Polish man in hiding, in the Elmpt Forest [2], just over the German border, near the village of Elmpt. Twelve others had already been shot in the same forest area on December 26, 1944. [5]
