Hannie Schaft — Dutch Resistance Hero
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
Hannie Schaft, the “girl with the red hair,” was a university student when Nazi Germany occupied the neutral Netherlands in 1940. Over the next five years, she risked everything—her education, her safety, her family, and her life—in order to shelter her Jewish friends and become, along with her young comrades, the Oversteegen sisters, one of the Most Wanted resistance fighters in the country. Join author Buzzy Jackson and interviewer Felix Pfeifle to explore the little-known story of Hannie Schaft, how the Netherlands became, statistically, the most dangerous place for Jews in Western Europe during the Second World War, and the lengths these Dutch heroes went to in order to resist fascism and the Holocaust. Suggested donation is $18.
