Henk Strating

HenkStratingHenk Strating (1930) lived during the days of May 1940 in Windschoten, opposite the train station. With his friends he played on the station area, regularly. During the years of occupation Henk saw a variety of trains passing by. After school, Henk and his friends walked around the station area and found pencil-written letters, sometimes not more than toilet paper. They threw the collected papers  – just as it was told them – into the mailbox of a doctor who lived nearby. After the war, the doctor turned out to be the head of the resistance in Windschoten.
