Day 315

These are photos of my Pake and Beppe (Frisian for Grandfather and Grandmother)  They were both a part of the Dutch resistance in the WWII. 

Pake would help downed pilots and give them his clothes so they wouldn't get caught. He would also cut phone lines and try to wreck train rails.  Beppe hid weapons in a false bottom of the baby carriage and remembered having to watch her Jewish friends be paraded down the street never to see them again.

While they survived the war, their efforts and sacrifices will not be forgotten.

Marius Gerard Wuite and Anna Wuite Kingma. 

We will remember them.
