Ambtenaren

Resistance by (mostly municipal) officials. They made an important contribution to the care of people in hiding, e.g. by falsification of documents. Sometimes this threatened to come to light and then a combat team had to break in to protect these officers. One of these actions was very successful: The Raid on the Distribution Office in Valkenburg
