Maria (Rie) Spronk-Hughes – Special Guest and Holocaust Survivor

In 1941, in occupied Holland, nineteen-year- old Maria (Rie) Spronk and her twenty-year- old sister Katy joined the Dutch Resistance. They were later arrested by the Gestapo, sent to a Nazi prison, then to Vught Concentration Camp and tried for sabotage. Rie's daughter Yvonne tells the young women's story in The Red Handkerchief. Yvonne and Rie will share that story of courage and compassion.

*A book signing with Yvonne and Rie will follow the program*
