 Creator:  P., Marion, 1920-2016 | Ritvo, Lucille B., 1920- | Herz, Sara Moss 
 Publication:  Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale, New Haven, Conn, 1986. 
 Notes:  Videotape testimony of Marion P., a Christian rescuer who was born in Amsterdam in 1920. She discusses the situation of the Jewish community in Holland before the war; German occupation in 1940; and the anti-Jewish propaganda and legalized persecution that gradually followed. Mrs. P. tells of witnessing a round-up of Jewish children, which prompted her to become more active in the rescue of Jews and relates how, working through an unofficial network rather than a formal branch of the underground, she effected the rescue of Jewish children and adults. She notes problems arising from the close contact between Jews who were hidden and those who were hiding them and recalls killing a pro-Nazi policeman in order to prevent the betrayal of her Jewish charges. She also speaks of the treatment of returning Jews after the war; her decision to become a psychoanalyst; her postwar work for a Jewish agency in the United States and with children of survivors; and her perception of present-day reactions to the Jewish experience in the war.
