The Nazis – The very mention of the phrase conjures up images of terror and of an evil nation that once ruled most of Europe and sentenced millions to their deaths. Read this dramatic tale told for the first time by one of the actual survivors, 98-year-old Johannes Marinus van Vlie as he shares with us his life of a five-year occupation by the Third Reich.
Probe the baffling mystery with us of why only 27% of the Jewish population of The Netherlands survived as opposed to the 60% and 70% of survivors of Belgium and France making it by far the highest percentage of a death in all of occupied Europe. The horrific details of perseverance in the midst of death camps, hiding from the infamous German SS death squads, continuous aerial ‘dog fight’ battles fought overhead downing an average of three planes per day and finally freedom.
