    Videotape testimony of Jan V., a Christian rescuer, who was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He recounts attending school with Jews, but noting no differences or prejudice; anti-Jewish laws after German invasion; asking his minister, a liberal protestant, what he could do about Jews being "picked up"; being told to hide Jews in his home (he lived in a boarding house and could not); being approached by a contact of the minister to help find homes in which to hide Jewish children; contacting the liberal ministers in Arnhem for assistance; placing many Jewish children in hiding; additional assistance from the Roman Catholic church; an incident with a baby which led to his exposure; going into hiding to avoid arrest; and living with a family and working in their laundry, then moving to his parent's home until liberation. Mr. V. discusses the enormous stress of underground work and sharing his story with his children in writing, but not discussing it with them.
