Description

Set in Nazi-occupied Holland, this book tells the story of the author’s uncle, an anti-Nazi resistance fighter. A gentle, thoughtful man who had a successful career as a commercial photographer, he eventually reacts to ruthless tyranny by joining the Resistance as part of a team that forged identity papers to help potential Nazi victims to hide, evade capture, even escape from the occupied country. Discovering a new persona and natural acting skills, armed with forged papers and wearing a Gestapo uniform, he succeeded in saving many potential victims of the Nazis. With the narrative tension of a novel, Gardner weaves meticulous research into a story of courage and heroism, even though it has a grim ending.
