Video on Johtje Vos

Hi Everyone!

In my English Class, we are reading Night. Along with reading the book, we have a research project. We were each assigned a specific person who played in active role in the Holocaust. I was given Johtje Vos. She was a rescuer. She helped hide over 30 people and was very brave while doing all of this. Throughout the video, I noticed in her story-telling that she had tremendous courage and was determined to keep others safe even if it meant sacrificing her own life. If you would like to check out the video, go to There will be a list of a few peoples names. I encourage you to watch every video (each is about 30 minutes long). Their stories are truly fascinating.
