Contrary to the image that most Dutch people resisted the Nazis, only a small percentage actively participated – many of them women delivering messages or smuggling children to safety. What would they say if they could speak to us now? How are their decisions and struggles relevant today? Writer Mary Fillmore will explore how people decided to resist, what they actually did, and what resulted. We’ll discuss how their courage can inspire people with a broad range of views.
