In 1940, 21-year-old actress Silvia Grohs-Martin was a star at one of Europe's most historic theatres. Then, one day in autumn 1942, the theatre was converted overnight into a deportation centre for Dutch Jews, and Silvia and her fellow theatre workers found themselves helping to care for the thousands of Jews being shipped off to the concentration camps. Silvia later joined a Dutch Resistance group, only to be captured by the Nazis. She survived three concentration camps, including Auschwitz and Ravensbruck. This text tells her story.
