  1. Sylvester Berden, S.J.W.M.M. Is my uncle. Do you have any more info on him?
    I have been trying to research him, but Im not coming up with much.

    Your uncle’s entry on the list of Dutch helpers shows that Allied Military Intelligence awarded him a Grade 5, the most common award (a grade 1 is the highest) and that it was posthumous (did he die in a concentration camp or was he shot outright?). If you go to the page on the website “FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, What Did My Mother, Father, etc. Do in the Resistance?” (at http://wwii-netherlands-escape-lines.com/faqs/faqs-resistance/) you will find suggestions for research. There are links to ordering copies of a helper’s file from the National Archives directly or through a professional researcher. Once you have his file, there may be entries in it giving the names of his contacts in the Resistance, the names of airmen he helped, etc., and you can follow them up. If there is the name of an American airman, the airman’s escape and evasion report may be available online and may provide more details (see http://wwii-netherlands-escape-lines.com/research/national-archives-research/escape-evasion-reports-available-on-line/). If he died in a concentration camp, you may want to contact the International Tracing Service at https://www.its-arolsen.org/en/homepage/index.html.

  2. I have an addition to the list of Dutch helpers: Henriette Jacoba Roosenburg (1916-1972), known as Jet or Yet Roosenburg. At her grave in France is a memorial plaquette bij de Royal Airforce Society and her family received a condolence letter from that same society. I am currently researching her activities and trying to British files on her at the RAFES archives, which is how I came across this website. Roosenburg was connected with the well-known resistance woman Joke Folmer, named in the list. They were betrayed, condemned to death in 1944, but survived nonetheless.

    Reply: “Jet” Roosenburg was an important figure in the Resistance, specifically in the escape and intelligence line first known as Luctor et Emergo, later as Fiat Libertas. An organization chart of Fiat Libertas, compiled probably by the SD (the SS secret police) or by the Abwehr (German Military Intelligence), appears on this website at http://wwii-netherlands-escape-lines.com/other-escape-lines/luctor-et-emergofiat-libertas/. It shows Jet Roosenburg as heading the intelligence part of Fiat Libertas’ intelligence operation.
