About this title


A valuable and important addition to the literature of Holocaust and Survivors of World War 2. Professor Kooistra was Chaplain at the University of Waterloo in Ontario after he emigrated to Canada from Holland. During his tenure at Waterloo, he created a Study Group which made oral histories of Holocaust victims and Survivors. From this vast wealth of material, he has now prepared this book. The book has a definite Dutch focus. It provides important new information about the persecution and deportation of Dutch Jews as well as how many Dutch Jews were hidden and saved in Holland. Written for both Jews and non-Jews. The most amazing stories are tales of survival by non-Jews in concentration camps. Many of the stories are astonishing and painful. Heroism -- yes, but also chance, confusion, the unexpected. An important contribution both to history and to literature.

From Publishers Weekly:

During his tenure as chaplain at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Remkes Kooistra, a Calvinist, explored the question Where Was God? The Lives and Thoughts of Holocaust and World War II Survivors. Drawing on his own experiences living and working in the Netherlands during the war (his father was imprisoned for "underground" activity and nearly died), other academics' writings and, predominantly, the oral histories of Jewish and non-Jewish survivors of WWII living in the Waterloo area, Kooistra has constructed an eloquent, painful book about persecution and redemption. Although many of these pieces are excerpts from previously published works, Kooistra does provide new information about the treatment of Dutch Jews during the war, including how many were hidden and saved from the Holocaust.
