    Overview

    Summary
    "In the Netherlands, resistance to Nazi occupation was high among all sectors of the population, and yet many Dutch Jews fell victim to deportation and annihilation in the camps of Eastern Europe. How could a country that prided itself on its tolerance, adherence to legal norms, and democratic government have been the site of such an enormous tragedy? Even while Nazi arrests of Jews were taking place, Arnold Douwes, an entrepreneur and restless adventurer, headed a clandestine network of resistance and rescue. Douwes had spent time in the United States and France and was arrested several times by the Nazi police. Keenly aware that he was doing something important, he started a diary in the summer of 1942. He hid some 35 small notebooks in jam jars at his brother's house in Dedemsvaart. After the war, he dug the notebooks up and transcribed them, adding several postwar sections with scrupulous notations. Bob Moore and Johannes Houwink ten Cate have translated Douwes's diary into English for the first time and added a historical and contextual introduction, annotations, and a glossary for readers who may not be familiar with Dutch technical terms or places. Organized chronologically, and remaining largely as Douwes originally wrote it, the diary sheds light on the successes - and failures - of the Dutch resistance effort."--taken from back cover.
