    This part of Kampina is very quiet, great chance to spot deer.

    During the Second World War, the Schut family lived on the Balsvoort farm. The brothers Hein and Theo had contacts with the resistance.
    They were also very concerned about the fate of the incorrectly dropped Market Garden paratroopers and helped with the transport of food to the various shelters. They also offered shelter to people in hiding and evacuees, including the mayor of Oisterwijk Verwiel and their own brother Bernard. A specially made bomb shelter and the barn served as shelter.
    The resistance held seven Germans captive at the farm, but released them on October 4 without the Schut family's knowledge. Not long after, the Germans surrounded the farm. The surprised brothers Hein and Bernard were arrested. Bernard tried to escape, but was killed while trying to escape. His family only found him after the liberation on November 2, 1944. Hein was taken away and after a brutal interrogation he was shot dead on October 7, near the Groot Aderven.
    The farm was demolished in the 1980s and returned to nature, but afterwards the outline of the farm was made visible again in the landscape with a low wall. A commemorative plaque there commemorates the execution of the Schut brothers.Source: tracesofwar.com
