Lecture Dutch-Paris escape line1942-1945 by Megan Koreman

Wednesday 15 March, 2pm - 3pm

The Dutch-Paris escape line started in 1942 when Dutch expatriates in Belgium and France offered to help Dutch Jews who were fleeing from the deportations. It developed into one of the most important resistance lines in western Europe, rescuing over 2,000 Jews by hiding them or taking them to Switzerland.

The rescuers came from many different backgrounds and walks of life. Some of them were themselves Jews who chose to stay behind in Nazi-occupied Europe to help others survive.

On the occasion of the release of her book Gewone helden, De Dutch-Paris ontsnappingslijn 1942-1945 (Amsterdam: Boom uitgevers), Megan Koreman comes over specially from the US to share the story with us.
