War of Resistance, 18 March 2012
Author: thebaritone55 from South Africa

This movie is based on true events in the Netherlands during World War II. What I enjoyed the most about the movie is that Non-Jews showed empathy towards Jews. The Dutch students were prepared to go the extra mile to fight for freedom and equality also taking into consideration their impending fate if they were caught as in the case of Piet one of the heroes of this movie. The Story starts out when all the Jewish professors are expelled from the local University. Hans one of the future Resistance leaders is asked to sign a pact with the Nazis and in exchange his father who was dismissed would be re-employed by the Nazis. He rather opts to help the underground resistance movement where he meets Piet the leader of the student resistance.
