IN 1942 EN 1943 HEBBEN
RUIM 650 JOODSE LANDGENOTEN
"DE BARNEVELDGROEP"
IN DE SCHAFFELAAR EN
IN HET HUIS DE BIEZEN GEWOOND.

GELEEFD IN VREES,
GEHOOPT ER VEILIG TE ZIJN.

ZIJ WERDEN OP 29 SEPTEMBER 1943
WEGGEVOERD NAAR WESTERBORK.

DE MEESTEN HUNNER
HEBBEN DE KAMPEN OVERLEEFD.
De groep bestond uit 700 bevoorrechte Joden (~500 in Barneveld) die geselecteerd waren op basis van hun rol in eerste wereldoorlog of hun maatschappelijke positie. De secretaris van het ministerie van Binnenlandse zaken, mr. dr. K. J. Frederiks heeft hier een belangrijke rol gespeeld en heeft afspraken weten te maken met de Schmidt, de Duitse NSDAP vertegenwoordiger in NL, en zo de SS buiten spel weten te zetten. Na hun deportatie (vlak na het overlijden van Schmidt) in 1943 zijn ze later in 1944 uitgeruild en in Zwitserland terecht gekomen.

MORE THAN 650 Jewish COMPATRIOTS
"THE GROUP BARNEVELD"
HAVE IN 1942 AND 1943
LIVED IN THE HOUSE OF THE BANDS.
IN THE SCHAFFELAAR

LIVED IN FEAR,
TO BE. EXPECTED THERE SAFELY

THEY WERE ON 29 SEPTEMBER 1943
DEPORTED TO WESTERBORK.

MOST OF THEM
CAMPS HAVE SURVIVED.
The group consisted of 700 privileged Jews (~ 500 in Barneveld) who were selected based on their role in world War I or their social position. The Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Mr. KJ Frederiks has played an important role and has managed to make appointments with Schmidt, the German Nazi Party representative in the Netherlands, and so the SS sidelined. After their deportation (shortly after the death of Schmidt) in 1943, they were later exchanged in 1944 and ended up in Switzerland.
