The interviewed woman tells that she heard rumours that the owners of that house hid Jewish people during the war. At a certain point approximalely 350.000 from the Nazis
The Nazis, who considered the Dutch to be fellow Aryans, were less repressive in the Netherlands than in other occupied countries, at least at first. Their main goals were the Nazification of the populace, the creation of a large scale aerial attack and defense system, and the integration of the Dutch economy in the German economy.
The random razzia and deportation of over 400 Jews, stimulated resistance greatly.
The first to organize themselves were the Dutch communists, who set up a cell-system immediately. Some other very amateurish groups also emerged, and also some military-styled groups started, such as the Ordedienst ('order service'). Most had great trouble surviving betrayal in the first two years of the war.
Dutch counterintelligence, domestic sabotage, and communications networks eventually provided key support to Allied forces beginning in 1944 and continuing until the Netherlands was fully liberated. Some 75% (105,000 out of 140,000) of the Jewish population perished in the Holocaust, most of them murdered in Nazi death camps. A number of resistance groups specialized in saving Jewish children including the Utrechtse Kindercomité, the Landelijke Organisatie voor Hulp aan Onderduikers, the Naamloze Vennootschap (NV), and the Amsterdam Student Group.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_resistance
