Mayor E.H.J. baron van Voorst tot Voorst unveils a memorial stone attached to the house of Coba Pulskens in Tilburg in the presence of a.o. A.H.J.L. Fiévez, the Minister of War. This illegal worker, who later on died in concentration camp Ravensbrück, gave shelter to many allied pilots in her house. Representatives of the allied air forces attend the ceremony. Near the memorial stone, decorated with flags of the allied forces, a moment of silence is observed, a floral tribute is given and wreaths are laid. Inhabitants of Tilburg march past it. A large public interest. 00:06 Fiévez (light coat, left); Van Voorst tot Voorst (with chain of office, right)
