Constant lived along Sarphatipark with his partner Matie van Domselaer during the Second World War. The park was then called 'Bollandpark,' as during the German occupation street names and other public places named after Jewish people were renamed. Today it has its original name back.

During the war, artists were required to register with the Reich Chamber of Culture to be allowed to continue their practice. Constant did not register and would therefore hide in the crawl space under their house when danger approached.
