Overview

During Ruth Stern's childhood, Nazi Germany was rising to power. After Ruth turned sixteen, she wanted out. Too old for the children's transport, Ruth's mother let her sneak into then neutral-Holland without realizing they would lose touch for nearly a decade. Across the border, a home for child refugees took Ruth in. When Germany invaded Holland, the group was shuffled around from place to place until Ruth arrived in the city of Winterswijk where a Rabbi's family took her in. There, she fell in love with Jesse Kropveld who later became her fiance. Laws were becoming increasingly harsh for Jewish people, and Jesse's family took her along with them into hiding. Tragically, the group was forced to divide. Under the protection of the Dutch resistance movement, Ruth endured a heart-wrenching journey across Holland with close Nazi encounters as told in her biography, Nevertheless We Lived.

    A must read!!

    Ruth Kropveld's story is phenomenal. It's mind blowing that she had to hide in so many different places under the protection of the Dutch Resistance to flee the Nazis. I can't believe that she actually lived under the same roof as a German Commandant who took over the house where she was playing the role of the 'maid', and he didn't even know she was Jewish!! It was so brave of her to leave Germany for Holland by herself when she was 16 thinking it would be safe, then months later Germany invaded Holland...so scary. All of her personal government documents included in the book are fascinating, like her permission slip to leave the harbor of Rotterdam, a camp where she was being held, to have permission to leave just for the day. World War II is definitely an important part of history that everyone should not only understand but feel connected to, and seeing it through Ruth's eyes in her late teens early twenties really helped me to understand what life was like for her, her family and Jewish people who were forced to live through the Holocaust. I highly recommend it.
