    A final warning from those friendly resistance guys, most of who weren't actually in the resistance until after the Germans had departed.

    Nice bit of social history!

    Indeed, an interesting piece of history. I wonder from what city/village, because this is obviously a 'local initiative' without the back-up of the 'official' resistance-authorities such as the Binnenlandse Strijdkrachten (Internal Forces), who were also recognised by both Allies and Germans as combattants and representatives of the State.
    I have never seen such a pamphlet in over 40 years of collecting. Next time when I go to Amsterdam, I'll ask round with the Dutch Resistance Museum, if they have any such-like 'warnings'.

    Cheers,
    Odulf

    I visited the Dutch Resistance Museum in Amsterdam a few weeks ago but certainly can't remember seeing anything like this on display.
