Tineke Wibaut-Guilonard was a member of the Amsterdam resistance group CS-6 during the war. This group carried out several liquidations, the most famous being that of H.A. Seyffardt, general in the Dutch Volunteer Legion. At first, Tineke managed to escape arrest, but in the second instance, she and her resistance group ended up in Camp Vught through betrayal. There, Tineke Wibaut was put to work in the “Philips-Kommando,” where she learned to make radio tubes. This saved her from deportation to the Eastern European concentration camps for a long time. In 1944 she was deported to Camp Ravensbrück, but from there women with the technical skills she had gained at Philips were sent on to Camp Reichenbach in Poland, part of Gross Rosen. There she was put on “Todesmarsch” and, after much hardship and wandering, liberated in Salzwedel, Germany, by the Americans. After the war, she contributed much to the commemoration of World War II.


The interviews with Tineke Wibaut (1922-1996, daughter-in-law of the well-known Amsterdam alderman Wibaut) and Ms. Wijnalda focus around their experiences in the resistance during World War II and their subsequent internment in Camp Vught and the Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp. Among other things, they talk about the work they did in Vught for Philips and in Ravenbrück for the German electronics concern Telefunken.
