Hi, I shall answer a few of your questions. Tomorrow may be moreIt is well known that from the labour camps of the men from village Putten, only 7,5% came back after the war.
Please give us the proof for this statement.
It is very good documented that only 7.5% of the Putten men returned at home, the rest died. In a previous reply, the link was already provided.
That's what is asserted. The returns, or at least some of them are documented. It doesn't follow the rest died. That's only documented in some of the cases. I happen to know a Dutchman that was in East Berlin for a time, he only could come out there because he could PROVE that he was a Dutch citizen. Others may not have been that lucky. If one does not know what happened to a specific person one files that as missing, not dead.
