This is the story of my children’s great aunt Cornelia from Haarlem Holland who hid Jewish babies during the holocaust .
One baby she pretended was hers and saved from certain death .
After the war baby Nico ‘s parents never returned to get him since they had been deported to a concentration camp and murdered.
Cornelia had adopted baby Nico and made sure he knew of his Jewish roots .
She was ‘ honored at the Yad Vashem holocaust museum and had a tree planted there .
She died the year my oldest child , her great niece was born !
I will visit the tree soon
I asked for the location and i will take a photo of the tree planted in her honor in 1966.
It is important everyone heard of the story of her heroism ,Cornelia Gerhardina Blaauw was a hero and an example for future generations to always light the darkness!
