    Overview

    Collection Summary
    Maurits Schaap filmed 8mm home movies of the extended Schaap family's prewar, wartime, and postwar experiences in the Netherlands, Palestine, and England. His son, Eli Schaap, donated Betacam copies of the original films to the Museum. Highlights include: 1930s Palestine; building of a synagogue in Rotterdam in the 1930s; a gypsy encampment; a Jewish orphanage in Leiden; the 1942 birthday party for the patriarch of the family; Zionist youth groups; postwar visit to the non-Jewish Dutch family who hid the Schaaps; and the Negbah ship departing Holland with Holocaust survivors for Palestine in 1947.
