Does anyone have information as to who replaced Olga de Ruiter the head of the NSVO (Women's Organization) in Mussert's NSB. Ruiter resigned in August 1943. Thanks.

Louise Marie Couzy, (Aug.4, 1903, Amsterdam - May 30, 1975, Amsterdam).

From Nov. 22, 1943
At the invitation of the Reichsfrauenführerin, the new head of the Dutch NS-women's organization (NSVO), Ms. Louise Couzy, with her Abteilungs- und Distriktsleiterinnen, is visiting Germany.
She first visited West German cities that were particularly hard hit by the bombing and learned about the preparations and measures.

Thanks so much. I just found the name myself and photos of the transfer of power. It seems that Couzy has been misidentified in many photos as Ruiter. Even Dutch historical websites think she's Ruiter and they look nothing alike. Here is a photo of both of them together shaking hands in August 1943. Couzy was very tall and Ruiter a lot older -- Ruiter is wearing the light dress.
