Hartwerd (West Frisian: Hartwert) is a small village, near Bolsward, in the municipality of Súdwest-Fryslân in the Province of Friesland in the Netherlands. It had around 125 residents in January 2017.[1]


A restored historic windmill, De Oegekloostermolen, which was built in around 1830 stands near the village.

History

The Monastery of Saint Hugh[which?] (Dutch: Oegeklooster),[2] which was the largest religious house in Friesland, stood in the vicinity of the village from 1191 to 1579. In the course of the Münster Rebellion, the monastery was attacked in 1535 by a group of Anabaptists, who badly damaged the buildings of the cloister.

The Blessed Titus Brandsma, O.Carm., was born on a dairy farm in Oegeklooster. He was a Carmelite friar, who became a noted scholar and philosopher, and helped to found Radboud University. He was arrested by the Gestapo during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands for his open and strong opposition to their goals, and sent to Dachau concentration camp. There he was executed there by lethal injection in 1942. He has been declared a martyr by the Catholic Church.[2]

Before 2011, the village was part of the Wûnseradiel municipality.
