Dutch Rescuers By: Ziona Kidd The Dutch were profound, uplifting people whose iron devotion to human caring compelled them to risk everything, to shelter, hide, and save the vulnerable.” Said David K. Shipler Pulitzer Prize winning author of, Wounded Spirits in a Promised Land. WW2 brought on difficult circumstances that forced the Dutch to make serious choices. Therefor there choices made a huge difference. Dutch Rescuers rescued Jewish people during the Holocaust Dutch rescuers saved and found hiding places for Jewish people during the Holocaust.

(Klempner, 21) To get away from Nazi propaganda some Dutch households hid transistor radios in attics and cellars, to listen to un-biased news. Heiltje Koolstra was one of the people to do this, she said,” We listened to the UK radio at night in our cellar to find out what was going on.” (Klempner, 53) During this time of chaos and violence Dutch had their communication underground.

I never believed the mode of my personal transportation defined who I was and how I lived because my car was just a means of getting me to work and the grocery store; in fact, it was no more a part of my life than my lawnmower was. A few years ago, though, my husband and I moved to Amsterdam for three years, and my bicycle, Bertha, became my best friend, the means of my independence, and most importantly, the cultural link to my becoming Dutch.
To be Dutch meant having a…
