Oral history interview with Elizabeth Labruyere and Willem Labruyere

Oral History | Accession Number: 1989.67.49 | RG Number: RG-50.012.0049

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.

Elizabeth Wilhelmina (born in 1909) and Willem Labruyere (born in 1910) describe their life growing up after 1910 in the Hague; helping two Jewish girls during the war; dealing with the first girl who came in 1942 and was very spoiled; asking this girl to leave because she was so careless and dangerous to the whole group; receiving Dora, a thirty-five year old woman from Vienna, in 1943; how Dora meant a great deal to them and eventually became part of the family; how they did not let their fears get in the way of saving a life; and how their belief in Christianity has served as more than just a way of thinking but also as a way of doing and being.
