Airmen's quarters near Zaventhem, winter 1944-1945. Jan Kloos: The sleeping guy is Jaap Lub, one of the gunners, with whom I shared a cell of the Kloostertehuis, Zaventhem, October 1944 to April 1945. Above the door it was signposted that this cell belonged to Sister Elizabeth. Prison-type bunks, no heating, and a very cold winter! Source: Jan Kloos, 26-04-2009. Picture: JPK 19-6-4.
