¶ The author Frans Eduard Farwerck (1889-1969) was a Freemason between 1918 and 1934. He was deeply interested in the archaeological Germanic past of the Netherlands and became a member of the NSB in 1933, in which party he became an important propaganda leader alongside Anton Mussert, until he was expelled in 1940 because of his former membership of Freemasonry.
