The entire Arntzen family of Amersfoort, Utrecht, felt deeply that the crimes being perpetrated by the Germans against the Jews were horrendous. Consequently, due to this heartfelt conviction, they all became involved in underground activity. Their family home served as a halfway house between Utrecht, where the UKC was active in rescuing Jewish children, and a few children’s homes where the lives of many youngsters were saved. These homes included “de Ingeborg,” in the woods in Leusden, run by Mrs. Hertha Muller-Kuhlenthal*, and “Treekerbergje” near Amersfoort. In addition to utilizing their family home as a way station, the Arntzens also provided food and ration cards to the youngsters passing through their door. They also maintained contact with the children’s families that had been dispersed to other parts of the country. The Arntzens seldom hid Jewish children under their own roof because they were deeply involved in underground activities and could not afford the added danger to themselves and those seeking shelter with them. Fourteen-year-old Sophia den Arend, who found refuge in the Arntzen home for six months in 1943, was for this precise reason moved to the “de Ingeborg” children’s home. Even at “de Ingerborg,” Sophia continued to be cared for by the Arntzens. In March 1943, nine-year-old Siegfried Alex (later Shalom) Pront was brought to the Arntzen home. He remained in their home until November 1945, when a relative of his, Aleida Pront, discovered that he was still alive and offered to take him into her care. Siegfried later emmigrated to Israel.
On November 24, 1983, Yad Vashem recognized Marinus Johan Arntzen, his wife, Dina Luberta Arntzen-Achterbergh, and their children, Marinus Johan, Jacob Wilhelm, and Dina Luberta Arntzen, as Righteous Among the Nations.
