    Consist of one testimony, five pages, presumably written in 1945, by Willy van Gurp, a female member of the Dutch Underground. Ms. van Gurp was arrested in June 1944 due to her involvement in the Underground. After questioning, she was imprisoned, first in the Vught concentration camp, and at the evacuation of the camp, she was sent to Ravensbrück. She describes conditions in Ravensbrück in the fall of 1944 and her deportation to Munich, where she worked in a munitions factory connected to Dachau. As the Americans approached, she was sent on a death march toward a camp near Innsbruck and was liberated en route by the American Army. She returned to Holland in May 1945. Pom Koppert-Buma, who is mentioned in the letter, sent this testimony to "Misses G. Hartog" in Paterson, New Jersey.
