The Centre welcomes Professor Bob Moore (Sheffield) to speak on "Everyday Rescue: The Diary of Arnold Douwes and the Realities of Sheltering Jews in Occupied Western Europe".


Abstract

Arnold Douwes, an itinerant Dutch gardener, became the leader of one of the most successful rescue networks in Western Europe. What makes him unique is that he kept a makeshift diary of his day-to-day work and experiences, providing a remarkable insight into a role that has often been misrepresented in Holocaust historiography.
