On Saturday, August 15, 2015 we took part in the battlefield tour Zutphen.
We also received a ticket for the Museum Achterhoeks 1940-1945. This is a surprisingly nice war museum in Hengelo (Gelderland) that the war brings into focus in the Achterhoek. With 1: 1 scale dioramas, objects, and an authentic store is the time of mobilization, the dark years of the war and the liberation made visible. I have made the following photoshoot for ARS Website.

|The resistance made use of secret transmitters to maintain contact with London.|
|In this show case several pilot equipments.|
|Posters played an important role in public information.|
|Falsification. During the war, identity cards and distributing registration cards were copied closely for the benefit of the people in hiding. Women played an important role as a courier to bring the stuff to this address, because they could hide everything under their clothes. Thus, they often came through the German checkpoints.|
