Written by James C. Schaap
The story of Berendina (Diet, pronounced as Deet) Eman, a young Dutch woman who, with her fiance, Hein Sietsma, risked everything to rescue Jews imperiled by Nazi persecution in occupied Holland during World War II.
During the years that Diet and Hein aided the Resistance, their courageous effort ultimately saved the lives of hundreds of Jews. The first-person narrative vividly captures the gripping events of her brave saga - from her initial engagement with Hein Sietsma in the Resistance operation, to her arrest and imprisonment at the Vught concentration camp, to the final grim toll of the war that devastated all of Europe.
Diary entries that Diet and Hein logged during the war as well as excerpts from personal letters that passed between the two young lovers detail their thoughts and emotions throughout the years. Here is a story that has all the emotional impact of ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ and all the drama of Corrie Ten Boom’s ‘The Hiding Place.’ As told to author James Schaap, who as a professor, taught English at Dordt College, Sioux Center, Iowa.
Hardcover, 400 pages, Illustrated Dutch WWII resistance history, postscript.
