Dr. C.H. ten Horn
St. Annastraat 20 Nijmegen

5 Aug. 1946

Dr. ten Horn declared to have heard shootings on Sunday.

At 7:00 o'clock in the morning he was called by Father Habets to give medical help to Americans who were located in the house of Mrs. Hoefnagel. He himself had spent the night in the cellar.

There were 17 paratroopers in the house at the Groesbeekseweg #2. Amongst them was an officer of health. The mood amongst the American was very good in the morning, but in the afternoon they got scared.

Monday afternoon Dr. ten Horn detected that around 4:30 p.m. SS'ers arrived in the St. Annastraat through the Trieststraat along the back of the offices of the E.R.K. They came from the Graafseweg.

Also on the corner of the Derks-Lijn store was a German patrol. During Monday Dr. ten Horn fetched the Americans from the house and took them one by one to the St. Canisius Hospital. After that he stayed home. Two Americans he had to leave behind upstairs in the house.

The night of Monday to Tuesday was quiet.

Tuesday morning at 8:15 he had a conversation at the home of Mr. Broekman, Keizer Karelplein #8.

Furthermore he was constantly busy in the hospital. Now and then he came home.
