Risk and Resistance: The Elise Kann Jaeger Collection


When Germany occupied the Netherlands, a young Elise Kann went into hiding with Molly Van Heel, a non-Jewish friend of her mother’s, and Molly’s husband, Jerry. Though Elise once walked in on Jerry while he was forging identification cards, it wasn’t until decades later that Elise learned the full story behind the Van Heels’ efforts to rescue countless Jews.
