Recently an amazing story was discovered in the archives of a Jewish community in Holland:
Through a chance meeting, two German soldiers- both artists – saved hundreds of Dutch Jews from the Nazis during World War II. Gerhardt sadly fell in battle in 1944, but Werner Klemke returned to East-Berlin, in the former GDR, and made a career as a world famous illustrator – with a little help from his Dutch resistance friends.
