    Jewish Resistance: Selma van de Perre

    Jewish Resistance: Selma van de Perre

    The 27th of January is Holocaust Memorial Day, to commemorate this day we are re-sharing our interview with the Holocaust survivor, Selma Van De Perre.
    Selma van de Perre was a Dutch resistance fighter who was just 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 extraordinary wartime story.
