  • Kornelis Kluiter, born 1925, arrested 25 April 1944, deported 1944 from Amersfoort, murdered 8 December 1944, Zöschen.
  • Hendrik Kluiter, born 1923, murdered 12 March 1944, Neuenkirchen.

The brothers Kornelis and Hendrik Kluiter were both farm workers. Neither married. No other information was found about Hendrik’s role in the war or his arrest. He was killed a month before Kornelis was arrested as part of an April 1944 raid.

Their parents, Cornelis Kluiter and Lolkje Terpstra, both survived the war and lived some time afterwards, dying in Bedum.

"Stolpersteine" is an art project for Europe by Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of National Socialism (Nazism). Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) are small, 10x10cm brass plaques placed in the pavement in front of the last voluntary residence of (mostly Jewish) victims who were murdered by the Nazis. Each plaque is engraved with the victim’s name, date of birth, and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death. By doing this, Gunter Demnig gives an individual memorial to each victim. One stone, one name, one person. He cites the Talmud: "A human being is forgotten only when his or her name is forgotten."

Borne was the first town in the Netherlands in which Stolpersteine were placed -- on 29 November 2007.
