- Diet starts out this conversation by recounting how she and her fiancé Hein began hiding Jews in the Netherlands during World War II because of a letter Herman, her Jewish friend and co-worker, received telling him to leave the country.
She talks about the dangers and risks that were involved in hiding the Jews, not only for those actually involved in the resistance movement, but also for their friends and family.
