  • Notes 
    • In October 1943, Simon Bolle and his wife Ilse (née Wijngaard) were forced to leave their hiding place in Amsterdam. They immediately turned to Susanna van Thiel (later Eijkelenboom-van Thiel*), who had regularly been helping their family, to obtain false papers and find safe addresses. Susanna put Simon and Ilse in contact with Maria Fikkert, who lived in Amsterdam with her two adult children, Egbert and Alida. On their arrival at the Fikkerts' home, Simon and Ilse discovered that two Jewish boys were already in hiding there. Nevertheless, realizing the urgency of the situation, Maria and her children insisted on sheltering the Bolles. Ilse and Simon remained there until the end of the war in May 1945. The Fikkerts had very little provisions, especially during the infamous hunger winter, when food, electricity and running water were scarce, yet they shared everything they procured with their four guests. Fortunately, during the most difficult period, Susanna van Thiel managed to bring food coupons to the Bolles once a month, which helped everyone a great deal. Over and above hiding Jews, Maria also concealed illegal arms for the underground fighters in her home. She was also involved in various activities for the illegal press. Maria knew that she was seriously endangering her life, and the lives of her children, but her vehement anti-Nazi feelings compelled her to run the risk.
      On February 10, 1983, Yad Vashem recognized Maria Elizabeth Fikkert-Heineman and her children, Marius Egbert Fikkert and Alida Fikkert, as Righteous Among the Nations.
