      On October 6, 1944, Pierre Emile Joseph Gruijters went with Ab Schols to a farmer in Posterholt to collect food for those in hiding. On the way they were stopped by two SS men. The front line ran approximately here in the fall of 1944. The two resistance fighters refused to hand over their bicycles. In Schols’ saddlebags, the SS men found illegal magazines.
      For interrogation, the two men were taken to a Gestapo station in the German town of Effeld, just over the border near Herkenbosch. After the interrogation, chief Wilhelm Lammertz from Eschweiler ordered the execution of Schols and Gruijters. They were shot in the woods near Effeld.
