I changed from a student in Holland to become a R.N. during the occupation of the Germans.The management of the hospital where i worked were german nuns who settled in Holland post WW1.
In October '44 we were liberated by the British:Something I will never forget,despite the heavy fighting we had to endure.The patients in the hospital, where I worked ,were moved from the cellar to better accomodations.We nurses still were in the cellar.One nite we heard tap-taptap.Somebody sending Morse code??I told this to a British officer.We knew that there were tunnels under the hospital,but did not know of any drawings of such.This officer decided to send a detail into the tunnels to find out what was going on.The result was:a German in contact with another in the tower of the Basilica downtown.
Well,you can imagine how happy we were when we saw an MP on a motorcycle. Behind him was THE German,hands tied behind his back,being driven through one of the side exits to his REWARD,we hoped.
