Prisoner ID bracelet worn by a non-Jewish doctor imprisoned for resistance activity

Object | Accession Number: 2004.554.2

Prisoner identification bracelet worn by Dr. Julius de Clercq Zubli in Sachenhausen concentration camp in Germany from September 1944-April 1945. Zubli was a non-Jewish Dutch physician in Amsterdam who aided Jews and the Dutch resistance in German-occupied Netherlands, 1940-1945. Zubli issued papers to Jews falsely stating that they had a contagious disease which delayed their deportation. He helped Jews go into hiding and delivered false food ration cards for the underground. In May 1944, Julius was arrested while caring for resistance leader, Gerrit van der Veen, shot during an armed raid of German Security headquarters. On July 6, Zubli was sent to Herzogenbusch (Vught) transit camp in Holland, then in September, to Sachsenhausen. He was liberated in April 1945 and, after the war ended in May, returned to Amsterdam and resumed his medical practice.
