Several witnesses who were heard in the course of the investigation, relatives of victims, saw these documents for the first time when the Netherlands Police showed them. For thirty years, they had not heard what had happened to their loved ones after they had been arrested. The Death Lists and Transfer Orders provide this kind of information for the first time. For example: one of the witnesses was happy even to know a possible date for her father’s death, so she could now remember him on that day every year.
The close relatives of the deceased in this case have the right to know the truth about the circumstances of the disappearance and the final fate of their loved ones as well as the outcome of the Dutch investigation.
