Liberated: 1944-09-18

Already in the first years of the war, the CPN resistance organization was busted in three villages (Schaesberg, Nieuwenhagen and Ubach over Worms, which form what is now Landgraaf in the eastern part of the coal mining district) by the negligence of one of its members, who was suspected of having stolen a bicycle. A list of names was found in his house. Almost everyone on this list perished in German camps. Among them were also some people who, according to Van Liempt, had bought a communist newspaper only once or twice. After the war, these people were also listed in the CPN archives as comrades who had fallen in Limburg.
