9781605712901: An Unlikely Hero Adrianus Millenaar Dutch Farmer Turned Diplomat In World War II Europe

AN UNLIKELY HERO "This book is the gripping and inspiring story of the towering courage and indefatigable resolve of Adrianus Millenaar, a diplomat who stayed behind at the Dutch embassy in Berlin after Hitler's Nazi Germany invaded and occupied the Netherlands during World War II. Millenaar's daughter, Adriana Millenaar Brown, then a young child, remained with her parents throughout the war. Her book, which combines careful and detailed scholarship with eyewitness accounts, relates how her father worked to improve and spare the lives of many of the thousands of Dutch citizens whom the German police and military captured and sent to a variety of destinations and fates-forced labor battalions, prisons, concentration camps, forced conscription into the German military. Adriana Brown's book shines revealing light on both the depths of depravity to which humans sometimes sink and the heights of nobility to which they are capable of climbing." -John W. Chandler, President Emeritus, Williams College Adrianus Millenaar was a true Dutch war hero. In Berlin, in the lion's den, during World War II, by endangering his own life, he helped many Dutch prisoners and slave laborers. His story must be read. -Bert van der Zwan, Historian at the Netherlands foreign Office, The Hague
