As the war progressed, Jewish persecution in Europe was increasing at a frightening rate. Concentration camps were built in various places in Europe, including in North Brabant. An SS concentration camp was established at Vught in which about 12, Jews; men, women and children, were imprisoned.
In April , nine-year-old Lore Samson, her parents, and her year-old brother, Alfred, fled to Tilburg from the German Rhineland to escape increasing anti-Semitism in Germany.

Simon and his brother Louis were spoilt rotten; the aunts had a cupboard full of toys. The sisters ran a tobacco shop in Tilburg. Roosje Glaser, the daughter of an affluent family, was raised in Kleve, Germany, where her father was a factory manager.
The growing anti-Semitism towards the end of the s was a huge blow to the family and the father lost his job. Seeing no future in Germany, the family relocated to the Netherlands. She was raised in Bergen op Zoom in a devout Catholic family. Where better to do that than in the monastery? On Tuesday 16 May , a roundup took place in Eindhoven and a young girl was arrested.
Three days later, she was deported together with her family from Camp Westerbork to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where she also died. Joodse kinderen liepen tijdens de bezettingstijd evenveel gevaar als hun ouders. Joost en Freddie Oppenheim probeerden het. Hun ouders vluchtten al in uit Duitsland en gingen in Eindhoven wonen. Totdat in ook daar serieus jacht op hen werd gemaakt. Ze moesten weg, allemaal. Maar waarheen? Waar vind je voor iedereen veilig onderdak? Erwin Michael Joseph — always known as Michael — was Jewish.

A couple of years later Jewish persecution began in Germany. Elli and Michael looked for suitable shelter in Amsterdam as a way of avoiding fate. During the war, the Sicherheitsdienst Security Service or SD hunted down state enemies, a group that included Jews, communists and resistance fighters. Some people tried to escape these investigations by fleeing to neutral territory or by hiding. His father was director of the Voba light bulb factory in Tilburg. He developed diphtheria while still in the cradle; when he was six he suffered severe concussion in a car accident. Eleven years later Theo escaped death.
While shooting water rats — a pastime with friends — a bullet penetrated his pericardium and an operation was necessary. In early , he joined the newspaper Trouw and started distributing it in West Brabant. Jan van der Laan, a salesclerk from Groningen who was one of the leading propagators of Trouw, was arrested in February Van Gils had been in regular contact with him, and therefore knew he needed to be careful.
Just before he was arrested, Van der Laan urged him to avoid a suspicious address in Princenhage, close to Breda. In the summer of , unmarried brothers Janus 60 , Jan 58 and Driek Hoeks 54 lived together at Hertheuvelsehoef, a farm on the border between Eersel and Bergeijk. The farm was owned by the Postel Abbey. Janus arranged the field work and dealt with all the trading. Jan did the housework and Driek, the youngest, was the carpenter. After May , they lived in relative ease on their remote farm, never wanting for food. In order to get the troops behind German lines, in the middle of occupied territory, Montgomery devised a life-threatening ruse: Operation Market Garden.
He drops his soldiers from aircraft just south of the three great rivers, the Meuse, Waal and the Rhine. The aim was to free up the bridges crossing the rivers so that the ground forces could invade from Belgium.
It was the summer of and the raids on Amsterdam were well under way. During one of the raids, a student from Utrecht noticed four Jewish toddlers who had been left out on the street. Her parents lived on Hoofdstraat, which at the time was called Dorpsstraat, in Heeswijk and ran a confectionery shop.
The couple secretly hid a Jewish couple for three years. The Biesbosch — the tidal zone of land and water — was avoided by the German occupiers during the Second World War. For a long time, the people hiding in this wilderness felt safe and they sometimes worked for local farmers. On 10 November , the German occupiers set up machine gun posts and started patrolling the area by boat. The recently liberated town of Drimmelen was showered with gunfire. He was so happy and relieved. Three days earlier, Jan had seen the Allies arrive in Tilburg, fifteen kilometres to the south.
The arrival of the Allies meant an end to the yoke that he and his loved ones had lived under for so long. She came from a weaving family and was familiar with a needle and thread, but Coba Pulskens had never needed to crochet a bedspread for her marital bed. But actually Coba was married: to Tilburg, her town. Only once would she ever go on a long journey — one of more than seven hundred and twenty kilometres.

Despite that, mayor Fried Manders cycled nervously across the Leenderhei heath on 6 July The year that Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany and the Nazis came to power.
The determined Paula quickly found a job as bath attendant in the Veghel municipal swimming pool where she was known as the Pool Lady.
