Remembering a Murdered Child

By: Remco.

In this poignant documentary Willy Lindwer chronicles the fate of a number of unknown Jewish children who were deported from the Netherlands and murdered in the death camps. Stories from the lives of nine of them are recounted in this work.

Former non-Jewish classmates, neighbourhood children and friends from long ago talk about their murdered Jewish friends.

Former Dutch Cabinet Minister Frits Korthals Altes remembers his classmate Riekje Teixeira de Mattos who was murdered in Auschwitz at the age of 13.

The documentary Remembering a Murdered Child (Dutch Jewish Broadcasting, 2012) is based on the book In Memoriam: The deported and murdered Jewish, Roma and Sinti children 1942-45 by Guus Luijters and Aline Pennewaard, which was released in February 2012.
