Bescherming (Feature Documentary)
Uniting from separate faiths, Nurit and Sietske became unlikely friends when Sietske's family agreed to hide Nurit, a young Jewish girl from Amsterdam, in their home in north Holland. Still active in their nineties, these two women - living across the world from one another - will virtually reunite via Skype to share their lifelong sisterhood of seventy years.
With supporting commentary from family and local historians, Nurit and Sietske reflect on the bond they formed while surviving in clandestine solidarity. In doing so, they remind future generations of the realities of the time and assert that faith, friendship and conversation are tools needed to ensure history does not repeat itself.
