Later during the war, Arondeus led a gay resistance group in Amsterdam that was responsible for bombing the Amsterdam Population Registry offices. The bombing was carried out in an effort to destroy government records on Jews and others sought by the Nazis. As a result of the act, Arondeus was executed in 1943. His efforts as a rescuer have been recognized by Yad Vashem and the USHMM.
