From the moment I started the research for the film and book on the Dutch SS Wachtbataljon at Amersfoort, new stories came to my attention. One of these stories is about Dutchman Herman Struik, born in my hometown Rijssen. He joined the Waffen SS in 1940. Some say he served in Norway and in Russia. In 1943 he changed sides and became one of the leading members of the Dutch resistance in the area around Utrecht in the middle of Holland. In 1944 he was killed by the German Secret Police. After the war a monument was revealed for the Dutch resistance group, but the name Struik is missing. I'm trying to find some information on Herman Struik. First of all, it's a remarkable story and second it shows the Dutch way of thinking about the war. I'm trying to reconstruct the life of Struik. Can anybody help me with information ?
