The Helpers

After the arrest, two of the helpers, Johannes Kleiman and Victor Kugler, are taken to this prison on the Amstelveenseweg in Amsterdam. After the war, Victor Kugler marks the cell he was held in: B3 – 11. Johannes Kleiman was held in the next cell.

After a month, Johannes Kleiman and Victor Kugler are transferred to another prison. On September 11, 1944 they are sent to Amersfoort concentration camp in the Netherlands. Miep Gies and Bep Voskuijl were not arrested; Miep because she insisted that she knew nothing about the people in hiding, and Bep because Johannes Kleiman made up an excuse which let her get away. After the arrest these women keep the business running.
