    Overview

    Brief Narrative
    Crayon drawing made by Betty Julia Ensel while she was living in hiding in the Netherlands. It depicts a girl holding a basket and a list of cities. When Germany occupied the Netherlands in May 1940, three year old Julia lived in Amsterdam with her parents, Rose Marie Schink, who was not Jewish, and Guy Weinberg, who was Jewish. Rose Marie hid twelve Jews in the attic of her house in Blaricum and was in contact with the Dutch resistance movement. Julia attended school under her mother's maiden name in order to avoid suspicion about her Jewish ancestry. Julia, her mother, and all of the Jews hiding in their house were liberated in May 1945.
