    Oral history interview with Elizabeth Labruyere and Willem Labruyere


    Interview Summary
    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.
