From February 1943 until October 1944 there was a secret / hidden village in the woods near Vierhouten. The village consisted of nine huts, where during this period a total of 80 to 100 people found a safe hiding place. These included Jews, Allied pilots and men who escaped forced labour camps. Initiators of the village were Eduard von Baumhauer and the Bakker couple. On 29 October 1944, the camp was accidentally discovered by two men of the Dutch Guard. Although many people in hiding managed to escape, eight Jewish people in hiding were caught. Two of them were executed near the De Paasheuvel camp house, the other six on the Tongerenseweg. Among them was a six-year-old boy.
