A true story of love stronger than Nazi persecution.

Things We Couldn't Say is the true story of Diet Eman, a young Dutch woman, who, with her fiancé, Hein Sietsma, risked everything to rescue imperiled Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II. Throughout the years that Diet and Hein aided the Resistance--work that would cost Diet her freedom and Hein his life--their courageous effort ultimately saved hundreds of Dutch Jews.

Now available in paperback, Things We Couldn't Say tells an unforgettable story of heroism, faith, and--above all--love.

Jewish Book World
"This powerfully written book gives the viewpoint of the Christian person who basically sacrificed a comfortable, 'safe,' and somewhat secure living in order to help the Jewish people during WWII. . . Reading this book, one cannot help but think of the 'Righteous Gentiles,' people who literally gave of themselves so that at least some of our people could live."
Jewish Chronicle
"Hers is a splendidly uplifting account of heroism against the odds. Extracts from her diary and letters written at the time add to a sense of immediacy. We are caught up in her fears, hopes and dilemmas as she experienced them."
