One event has always stuck clearly in my mind.
I was 11 years old and walked along Rapenburg in Leiden.
In front of me was a young girl with a Star of David on her coat.
She wanted to walk though Van der Werff Park, forbidden for Jews.
She took off her coat, folded it up so that the star was hidden, and walked into the park.
I often think of that girl and wonder what happened to her. Did she survive the war or was she murdered in one of the extermination camps?
