Ep 296: Jewish Resistance: Selma van de Perre, Part 2

Part two of our extraordinary interview with Selma van de Perre, a Dutch resistance fighter who was 17 years old when the Second World War began.

Using an alias and fake ID she risked her life travelling across the Netherlands, delivering Allied newspapers and helping Jews evade the Nazis.

In July 1944 Selma’s luck ran out. She was captured and transported to Ravensbrück as a political prisoner, where she remained until her liberation in 1945.

James Holland interviews Selma about her war time story.
