13 In De Oorlag (2009): S01E07 – Armed Resistance


13 in de Oorlag (13 in the War) is a docudrama about young people in the Second World War. In each episode, the war experience of a 13-year-old is central.


Many Dutch men went into hiding during the war to avoid having to work in the German war industry. Resistance fighters ensure that all kinds of official documents such as identity cards, receipt cards, permits are forged. Lisa Wade shows how they did it. Distribution offices are also raided to obtain real food stamps. The weapons for such robberies are often dropped by English planes. Sometimes that goes very wrong, the resistance fighters have been betrayed and they are arrested by German soldiers.
