Description:
The Reverend Nanne Zwiep (Aug 3, 1894, Beemster, North Holland - Nov 24, 1942, Dachau) was a pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church in the town of Enschede. He was arrested by the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands and died in the concentration camp at Dachau near Munich.

Zwiep became a pastor in Enschede in 1929 and was a well-known figure in the town. On Sunday April 19, 1942, he spoke out in a sermon against National Socialism and the persecution of the Jews. The following day he was arrested by the Germans and after five months of interrogation in prison in Arnhem and Amersfoort he was transported to Dachau. On November 24, 1942, two months after his arrival at the camp, he died of exhaustion and malnutrition.

The biggest Scout group in Enschede is named in Zwiep's memory.
