I’m trying to find info on French prisoners of world war 2. I know my grandfather was in a Nazi concentration camp. Is there any data bases you can recommend ?
I suggest you try the websites on this page. They may lead you to some useful information.
Dutch father Pieter arie van Dijk member of Dutch military spent entire second world war interned Changi Japanese prison camp. Singapore. After war remained as staff captain as interpreter Japanese war crimes trials 1945-6. Was he awarded any service or campaign medals or awards ?
I’m looking for information about the evaded crew of the Mosquito LR499 crashed Heeswijk- Dinther NL on the 2. December 1943.
The crew came together with T/Sgt. Louis H. Breitenbach and I are interested in the memoirs of him, but your Link to them isn’t working anymore.
Could you send me the PDF directly? Thanks Thorsten

The Webmaster replies: The website, resources21.kb.nl, no longer appears to be working, so there is no way I can provide you with the pdf file on Sgt. Breitenbach. Are you familiar with what is available on the https://www.airwar4045.nl/ website on Sgt. Breitenbach and are you familiar with this website: https://studiegroepluchtoorlog.nl/22-02-1944-sglo-t3449-boeing-b-17g-42-31399-pu-f/? The latter refers to a Bulletin 042 from June 1979 by Mr. L. Zwaaf that may have additional information.
My uncle Minne Zijlstra was in the Dutch Resistence, He was captured three times and imprisoned, but after the third escape he was put against a wall and shot by German soldiers. Do you have any information about him?
Dear Ms. Falconer,
I suggest that you contact the Dutch WWII archive, NIOD, at https://www.niod.nl/nl. They may be able to help you. Among their many resources is their file of newspaper articles, or knipsels. You may also find some useful suggestions on the following page of this website: https://wwii-netherlands-escape-lines.com/faqs/faqs-resistance/.
