This chapter focuses on the village of Nieuwlande in the Netherlands as a ‘land of rescue’ for the Jews during the period 1941/1942–1945. Drawing on the accounts of rescuers and runaway Jews, it analyses the political history of Nieuwlande. In particular, it looks at the diary of Arnold Douwes in order to understand the difficulties faced by members of the rescue network in convincing the local inhabitants to shelter runaways, as well as the strategies employed by the rescuers. It also considers the rejection of the German Occupation in Nieuwlande and the local inhabitants' reorganisation of civil resistance against the Nazis.

Keywords:   rescue, Nieuwlande, Netherlands, Jews, rescuers, political history, Arnold Douwes, runaways, civil resistance, Nazis
