John Henry Weidner Papers Opening For Research In The Hoover Archives

Friday, December 28, 2018

Hoover Library & Archives has opened the John Weidner collection, which documents the activities of the Dutch-Paris escape network, a World War II transnational resistance group that organized the rescue of Jews from arrest by the Nazis and supported approximately 1,500 people hiding from Nazi persecution. To mark the opening of the collection, Hoover hosted a lecture by Dr. Megan Koreman, author of The Escape Line: How the Ordinary Heroes of Dutch-Paris Resisted the Nazi Occupation of Western Europe (Oxford University Press, 2018).
