Resistance means activities directed against the forces of occupation. Forms of resistance included helping those who were persecuted go into hiding, printing and distributing underground newspapers, performing acts of sabotage, and all minor and major acts against the occupation policy.

In the Netherlands there were many resistance groups, including The National Organisation for Helping People in Hiding (LO) and the affiliated Landelijke Knokploegen (The National Assault Teams) (LKP), the

Persoonsbewijzencentrale (Personal Identification Cards Centre), groups that hid Jewish children, such as the NV group and the Utrecht Children's Committee, groups that distributed underground newspapers, such as De Waarheid, Het Parool, Trouw, and Vrij Nederland, the Ordedienst (OD), the Oranje Vrijbuiters, De Nederlandse Volksmilitie (The Dutch Militia of the People), the Westerweel Group, the Gerritsen group, CS-6, the artists' resistance group in which Gerrit van der Veen played an important role, and the Raad van Verzet (Resistance Council), an umbrella organisation of various resistance organisations, which was founded in April 1943.
