Harry's Story Gallery
Harry's Story is a heartfelt recollection of a boys life in Holland during the WWII German invasion and occupation in 1940-1945. As a boy, Harry didn't know the meaning of war but his father said 'You will learn' and so he did in the years to come. His family hid Jews when the Germans were sending Jewish friends and neighbours to the death camps.
Harry lost many family members during the War. He eventually immigrated to Canada and dedicated his life to helping others and telling his story to anyone that would listen. Harry married Fim and together they had three children. Harry was a regular at Remembrance Day services in local schools, telling his story to students. Now his story is preserved for future generations and shared around the world.
Professionally narrated and recorded in 4K video and 48 khz audio this documentary traces Harry's life and explains his gratitude to Canada for liberating Holland. Archival War footage was provided courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada - Canada Army Newsreels. Some footage of Harry's hometown of Aardswoud, Netherlands was recorded in 2016.
