Documentary / WWII
50 min / 1999
Among the “hidden heroes” of World War II were the thousands of Dutchmen who opened their homes to Jews and others who were hiding from the Nazis. They did this at great personal risk, and yet they did it in huge numbers. They were ordinary Dutchmen, but they displayed extraordinary courage.
Where did this courage come from? As this film chronicles, in many, many cases it came from their Christian convictions. This is truly an extraordinary documentary and it should be shown in all of our schools on Remembrance Day – it tells in short, compelling interviews and quick docudrama clips what our parents and grandparents lived through and what they did to oppose the evil of the Nazis.
This is an inspiring movie for anyone, but for those of Dutch descent, it is a must-see. And you can watch it for free below.
