Click to preview Rudolf Bernardus (Velo) Bierman photo book

This historical document is about my uncle Rudolf Bernardus (Velo) Bierman. During the Second World War he was a member of the resistance in The Netherlands. He was arrested because of treason and transported to several camps for prisoners of war in The Netherlands and afterwards to concentration camps in Germany. One letter 'n' saved his life in front of a firing squad. His name was misspelled on the deathlist as Biermann (double 'n'), and therefore he could prove that they were about to execute the wrong person. Although the book is meant to be a historical family document, his life is still mainly dominated by the black period of 1940-1945 and his imprisonments. The book contains a lot of historical and authentic documents.
