Unlike other databases, in which sometimes extra information is provided about the person d.m.v. summary, sometimes very extensive biographies, the articles about the members of the resistance here have become a collection of as many sources as possible. The Dutch Resistance Memorial leads you there via the name of the resistance fighter.

Committing an act of resistance is a multiple concept. It could mean showing disapproval of the occupier in various ways. For example, it could involve helping to produce and / or distribute illegal newspapers. Besides the violent resistance by means of raiding distribution offices (food stamps), carrying out attacks on strategic positions or people, there is also spying on the enemy. Courier work does not play an insignificant role in this. Aid to allied pilots, Jewish people in hiding, people trying to avoid the Arbeitseinsatz. It is also considered an act of defiance when someone has participated in strikes. Not to forget that, for example, singing the Dutch national anthem, hoisting the Dutch flag, or painting your platform orange did not go unpunished. Even though the offense was sometimes light, there was always the chance that you could be placed with a group of people who were executed in reprisal.
