A Friend Among Enemies A Friend Among Enemies

The Incredible Story of Arie Van Mansum in the Holocaust

by Keith, Janet

When the Nazis who had invaded the Netherlands in 1940, started deporting Dutch Jews eastwards in the Summer of 1942, Arie van Mansum, realizing these fellow citizens were in great danger, began - at the risk of his own life - the task of aiding what became scores of these targeted men, women and children. The help consisted of providing hiding places with Christian families who previously were known to Van Mansum, supplying rationing papers for daily necessities, and encouragement and hope. The book also details Arie’s capture and release by the Gestapo, and is a window on the nature of resistance work during Nazi occupied the Netherlands and its southernmost province, Limburg.
