Dutch bravery during Occupation by the Germans
22 December 2019 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Tense, suspenseful film about how the Dutch networked to save Dutch Jews once the Germans started rounding them up. In order to occupy Holland, the Germans had to agree not to prosecute the Jews. In 1943, they broke that promise. It was then that the Dutch began rescue operations. At its narrowest point, Holland is only 8 miles from Sweden - but it seemed like thousands.

The Jews were very well integrated into Dutch society, so it wasn't a simple matter for Nazis to locate them. And the Dutch rallied to protect them. They were hidden in quarantine wards in hospitals and other places while transport was arranged. At one point, when people are getting into a taxi to get out of town, a horse-drawn wagon, by pre-arrangement, blocks the Nazis view of the cab.

This is a small film, so we only see a microcosm of the work of the Dutch, focusing on one Jewish family, the Steins. The Stein daughter is 19-year-old Jane Seymour in what is I believe her debut, and she's lovely.

Very inspiring. The bravery and tenacity of the people in this country is remarkable.
