Opposite the Lion's Den

In 1942, after the German occupation of Holland, Daniel and Lydia converted the upper storey of their house as a hiding place for their five Jewish friends. Their hairdressing salon underneath was frequently visited by German and Dutch fascists and opposite their house was the SS headquarters. This autobiography details the day to day hardships and dangers faced by the Huygens family over almost three years.

Australian historian, Suzanne D. Rutland, creates a powerful context for the Huygens’ story in her preface.

“Mr Huygens’ book, a graphic and inspiring account, deserves to stand beside Anne Frank’s diary as a companion testament to that devastating period.” Canberra Times
