Several items in this collection refer to the municipality of Koersel in Limburg. Perhaps they were gathered during the war by one of the inhabitants since the publication "De Beestmensch" was sent to a local address. In 2018 Warre Verhaeghe rescued the items in this collection from a dumpster. He entrusted the publications and documents to his the school, the Royal Athenaeum Diest, for an educational project. Based on descriptions made by the students, Kazerne Dossin selected 12 items for its collection. Warre Verhaeghe subsequently donated the originals to the documentation centre in 2019.
