Publisher's Summary

Can hope be found amidst tragedy? Nestled in the hills on the western side of Jerusalem is a museum called Yad Vashem. There, people from around the world visit daily to learn about the tragic period of history from 1933 to 1945 known as the Holocaust. The museum serves as an education, research, and historical center in remembrance of the six million Jews across Europe who were murdered at the hands of the Nazi Party machine led by Adolf Hitler. A special section of Yad Vashem is dedicated to those who carried out acts of courage to save the lives of Jews during the Holocaust. Remembered there is a couple from Dieden of the Netherlands, Frans and Mien Wijnakker. Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust is the remarkable tale of how Frans and his wife, Mien, saved the lives of at least two dozen Jews in southern Holland during World War II. They were Catholics who led a simple life in a small town, but they took risks and displayed bravery to help others in dire need, instilling hope during one of the most horrific points of history.

    "Amazing read"

    This book was so informative and really taught me so many lessons. It teaches you about what went on during the Holocaust from the perspective on some courageous Jews. And again, all about how to be an amazing person like some of the people that were involved in this book. MUST READ!

    What made the experience of listening to Two Among the Righteous Few the most enjoyable?

    This book was narrated by the author, who was also related to the subjects of the book. I've read many books on this subject matter written by, or about, those who were the participants. This one tells the story of relatives who did everything they could to provide safety and security to a number of Jews during World War 2.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Among the Righteous Few?

    What does Marty Brounstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Intimate knowlege of the family and their feelings are evident in his voice as he tells the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The same as the title of the book
