The betrayal and subsequent death of Jan Braakman’s grandfather during the Second World War is the thread tying together this story of the Dutch village of Laren near the German border. Daring acts of resistance by locals aided the Dutch, the Jews, even Germans, as well as allied soldiers who marched through Laren on their way to liberate the Netherlands.
