... when he was arrested in Dordrecht in July 1943 by the enemy and after many long interrogations, was sentenced to death and after having spent a year in prison, was transferred to prisons in Germany in 1944...
A death sentence would have led to immediate execution.
Why would 'the enemy' have spared his life and fed him for almost two years?
And again, if he worked for the resistance, why would he have been so utterly stupid to risk being arrested by publishing about the OLB in 1943, despite prohibition?!!!!!
Verder verscheen nog een ander boekje: Het Oera Linda boek (1941) dat o.a. door Goebels werd verboden. Toch gaat de heer Overwijn verder met de verspreiding, hoewel de beruchte ds. G. van Duyl, die tot de SS was overgegaan, hem ten stelligste had verboden op enigerlei wijze propaganda te maken, op straffe van onmiddelijke arrestatie. Ondanks deze waarschuwing worden beide boekjes geplaatst.
Overwijn, J.F., - Merkwaardige namen en plaatsen in het O.L.B. - Ons Eigen Volk III, 1943, pp. 262-271.
Overwijn has done more harm than good to the credibility of the OLB, with nonsensical claims like that the JOL script is 20.000 years old, and that "Atland" actually comes from the Mayan word Atl = water, war, hair on the head (source Jensma 2004, p.156).

I think the OLB served for him as a way of relaxing, focusing on some fantasy to not go crazy by what happened in real life.
It's like some general writing poetry during a break in a siege. That doesn't mean that general is some airhead, or softy or whatever, it just helps him to stay mentally sane.
And when you read all that, it's kind of hard to keep assuming he was nothing but some dreamer or fantast or even liar.
There were too many people involved for him to pull that trick, to pretend he had been a war hero.
I am not going to translate all of it, but this guy was no nutter He was the head of an intelligence group in Dordrecht, "Dienst Wim". He even notified prime minister Colijn about the imminent German invasion, but that guy rejected Overwijn's warning note as being 'false and alarming', jeesh.
