Het Nederlandse Beheersinstituut
As you can see, I started with "Het Nederlandse Beheersinstituut" on the 4th of November 1946, just 9 days after I left Beukers.
I found a job in an office and also had one (1) week holiday! The first holiday for a long time!
Het Nederlandse Beheersinstituut was a department or section of the Department of Justice in The Hague.
It was set up to locate and take possession of any assets of Germans, collaborators of the Germans during the war, and of assets etc. of missing victims of the German occupation.
I did have to maintain the archive and collect and re-assess data.
At times there was newly collected data thay needed follow-up. With the help of qualified detectives, this at times took the form of breaking in into unoccupied premises, collecting items from safe-deposit boxes at banks and checking all records of known Germans and criminals at the Head Quarters of Police.
All very interesting but in the end it became a bit boring for me.
During the 3rd quarter of 1946 there were rumours in the office that the branch in Rotterdam would close. In meanwhile I had started studies for Modern Business Administration and I found that suited me better.
I found a job with De Kuyper were I was to start on the 1st of May 1948 and because I felt like another holiday, I resigned on the 1st of April 1948.
