The following map was prepared for me by Mokeham Publishing, Inc., publishers of Dutch, the magazine, at http://www.dutchthemag.com/. The cities and towns shown I selected for various reasons, but in many cases it was because they had or might have had a connection to the Smit-van der Heijden Line. The distinct color for each province can be helpful in several ways, such as helping you to identify the the regional archive that may have records on members of the Resistance in that province who are the subject of your research.
The coastline reflects what it was in 1942 when the reclamation was completed that resulted in the creation of the Northeast Polder. Modern day Flevoland did not come into existence until 1986.
