Holocaust Memorial Day 2014

Mirjam Ohringer – Widerstand gegen die Nationalsozialisten in NL

For The Holocaust Memorial Day 2014, REcall visited Mirjam Ohringer, one of the Jewish Resistance fighter in Amsterdam during the nazi occupation.

She told many stories of those days and in a very gentle way remembered friends and relatives who were deported and who never came back from the concentration camps. She also recalled the decision taken not to use the possibility she had to emigrate in Switzerland: “she felt impossible to betray the trust all the Jewish community had in her” as in all the other Jewish Resistance fighters.

Here, it is possible to download an interview to Mirjam Ohringer published in English last December (2013) where she takes on some of the arguments of our talk and of the interview presented above (from 2012).
