The Cut Out Girl description

Pre-war Holland was mostly free of anti-Semitism, but by war’s end the majority of its Jewish population was dead, betrayed by ordinary Dutch policemen pursuing “daily duties” while the bulk of the population looked away. But some refused to avert their gaze. Bart van Es’ The Cut Out Girl is a moving, confronting, deeply personal account of Lien, one of Holland’s Hidden Children: the story of a brave network of resistance formed to keep children safe, but which sometimes scarred them along the way.
