    Overview

    Summary
    A biography of Nathan Mertsbach, born in 1933 in Amsterdam to an assimilated Jewish family. During the German occupation of he was hidden by various families, first in urban areas and then in the countryside, where he survived until the liberation. His parents were in hiding in the south and were baptized there. The priest who was helping Fred converted him as well. However, he realized that the Church was unable to rescue him from being killed as a Jew. His maternal grandfather was his only grandparent to survive Auschwitz, and he died several days after returning to the Netherlands. Fred's father was run over by a military truck and died. After the war, Fred, despite his being a Christian, was confronted with antisemitism at least twice: first on the part of his teacher at a Catholic school and, later, during his army service. Subsequently, he abandoned Christianity and in 1967, with his wife and children, he immigrated to Israel, where he became an Orthodox Jew. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism).
