~Text in English. Ben Wessels and Kees W. Bolle were boyhood friends in the village of Oostvoorne, Holland, in the 1930s. Ten years later, Ben was struggling to survive in the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where he perished in 1945 along with fellow inmate Anne Frank and over a million Jews and other ethnic and religious minorities. Decades later when he was visiting his friend Johan Schipper in Oostvoorne, Kees Bolle discovered a bundle of letters written by Ben. Juxtaposing Ben's letters with reports from the Dutch underground press, both of which appear in English for the first time, Bolle creates a unique portrait of the Netherlands during World War II, one very different from the romantic vision of the Resistance often portrayed in other accounts.

~The Roman Catholic author visited the Netherlands to study Protestantism, Judaism and various other religions. He is very cautious with the French emigrants as many are fervently anti- Catholic and would even be able to kill him. His occasional contacts with the Jews are obviously much safer. At one occasion he uses the Synagogue in Amsterdam to meet a well-known French emigrant, the Marquis De Langallerie. He regularly discusses religious issues with the Rabbis. In Rotterdam he is present at a circumcision in the house of a rich Jew (p. 81) and in Ouderkerk he visited the Jewish cemetery, "which provides burial places for more than 20.000 Jewish families." On this latter visit he concluded that the poor Jews could not be converted and should be left to their "entêtement maudit." (p. 92).
