Abstract:

Several years before her death in 2006, Elise Dubois (b. 1936 in Zeist, the Netherlands) did research to restore her family's history; after 2006, her text was edited and published by her brother Wout (b. 1938). Elise's Jewish grandmother Lewina de Jonge-Cohen (b. 1871) and her daughter Helena were killed in the Sobibor death camp in 1943; Elise's aunt Jetje van Dam and her family were killed in Auschwitz in 1943. Elise's mother, Rika Elise Dubois-de Jonge (1904-1994) was married to a non-Jew, which helped save her and her children during the Nazi occupation. In January-July 1944 Rika Dubois was hidden by her husband's sister, but then she returned to her family. Pp. 93-99 relate the story of an acquaintance, Liliane, a non-Jew who saved the life of her Jewish husband Hans van de Waal.
