Hidden Heroes

The rescue of Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland is a story of unimaginable courage and faith. As told by those who lived through the Nazi terror, this evocative documentary recounts what it was like for Dutch Jews to face systematic isolation, persecution and elimination. Our subjects were mere children at the time. Children who witnessed their family and friends being arrested and dragged away — and, for most, never to be seen again. Children for whom unbearable pain and loss was cruelly compressed into a single experience of overwhelming terror.

Description

The rescue of Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland is a story of unimaginable courage and faith. As told by those who lived through the Nazi terror, this evocative documentary recounts what it was like for Dutch Jews to face systematic isolation, persecution and elimination. Our subjects were mere children at the time. Children who witnessed their family and friends being arrested and dragged away — and, for most, never to be seen again. Children for whom unbearable pain and loss was cruelly compressed into a single experience of overwhelming terror.

Hitler's plan to eliminate an entire race of people may have succeeded if not for those who saw the lie in his quest for perfection, those willing to stand against the Nazi evil—the Dutch resistance. They were ordinary people willing to risk their lives and the lives of their family to shelter and save Dutch Jews. These were Holland’s Hidden Heroes. Fullscreen.

Editorial Reviews

In 50 minutes of riveting color and black-and-white pictures teamed with haunting violin melodies, Hidden Heroes tells the story of the Dutch Resistance, whose members risked their own lives to save their Jewish neighbors from Hitler's horror. In picturesque Holland, amid the postcard-like windmills, Nazi occupation tore at towns and families. This documentary recounts what it was like for the Jews who lived through the terror; the riveting story is told by the survivors themselves. You can easily integrate this video into your teaching of the history of Europe, World War II, religions, or on sacrifice and patriotism. You can point out to even young learners that when wickedness rears its head, God puts His people in the fight to stand against the torrent. Without being graphic, this video shows clearly how Dutch patriots, many of them Christians, refused to capitulate to Nazism, and therefore saved countless lives. This is their story, the story of Holland's Hidden Heroes. Reviewed By: Deborah Deggs Cariker
