In this outtake Harry describes how the local Mayor chosen by the Nazis was threatening Harry’s family because they were hiding Jews from the Nazis. A local policeman who was a member of the Dutch underground stepped in to help the Andringa family by making his own threat to the Mayor.
The documentary, ‘Harry’s Story’ is about the childhood memories of Harry Andringa when he lived in Holland with his family during the Nazi invasion in 1940. He recalls the hiding of Jews in his family home to prevent Jews being sent to concentration or death camps. At the age of 25, Harry immigrated to Canada and worked as a TTC bus driver in Toronto for many years. After retirement he moved to the small village of Flinton, Ontario with his wife Fim and son David. Harry took a keen interest in volunteerism as a way to say thanks to Canada and the Allies for ending 5 years of Nazi brutality and ending the War in Europe in 1945. Harry’s memories are preserved in his documentary.
