#Found: Franciscus Theodorus Lazarom
We are looking for relatives of Franciscus Theodorus Lazarom, born on May 27, 1915, in The Hague, the Netherlands. He was a civil servant who last lived with his parents at Waterweg 198 in De Bilt, a district of Utrecht. He was arrested by the Germans in nearby Bilthoven in October 1944 and was initially taken to the Amersfoort transit camp. The words "zum Arbeitseinsatz Reich” were noted on his prisoner card, indicating that he was to be sent to work in Germany. A few days later, the German occupying forces deported Franciscus Lazarom to the Neuengamme concentration camp in Hamburg, where he was made to do forced labor for the Nazi regime. The Dutchman did not survive the ordeal. The documents say he died of lung disease on March 15, 1945. In 2022, a volunteer found the great-nephew of Franciscus Lazarom in The Hague and we were able to return his personal belongings.
