Clemens C.J. Roothaan was born in 1918 in Nijmegen, Holland.   As part of a non Jewish Dutch Resistance group, during World War II he was detained as a prisoner of war camp and then sent for a year to a concentration camp in Vught (Holland) and then sent to Sachsenhausen, outside of Berlin.  As the allies approached and the camp was shut down, Clemens was sent on a death march with the other inmates.
