Attempted escape

Camp Conrad Rouveen
augustus 1942

During that time I tried to go home.

Starting in August 1942, the regime became more rigid and the food more scarce. The cooks/managers returned from Ommen completely changed. Various changes were carried out. At the beginning of a meal they could no longer say “bon appétit” but instead had to say “good hunger.” From that time on, they had to march off to their work place, and there was stricter censorship of incoming mail.
