International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2024: The Rescuer and Rescued: Ingrid and Maud
January 28, 2024
In 1942, Maud was 6 years old living in the Netherlands. The Nazi presence was becoming increasingly dangerous for Jewish families like Maud’s. When Maud’s family received a “call-up” notice, instructing them to come to the train station with a suitcase, the family was suspicious. They called upon a non-Jewish friend who was working with the Dutch Underground, a resistance movement that opposed the Nazis, and found a temporary place for Maud and her younger sister to hide. Maud found herself with Jan Kanis and his four children. Jan’s youngest child, Ingrid, would be born shortly after Maud’s brief stay, but Ingrid grew up with the stories of the many Jewish people that her parents hid during the Holocaust, including Maud and her sister.
In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we will bring together Maud and Ingrid, to share their memories, the impacts of these experiences, and to hear their messages for us today. Recommended for 12+.
