Education

The Weidner Foundation working with The Hoover Institute at Stanford University will be providing archival materials for those interested in understanding how a World War II rescue line operated. 

Currently, the 36 acid-free file boxes of John Weidner’s personal correspondance, documents, diaries, schedule books, and other Dutch-Paris Line materials are being catalgued for public viewing at The Hoover Institute on the campus of Stanford University. This represents over 11 linear feet of documents kept by John Weidner, the originator and manager of the Dutch-Paris Escape Line.  This line was responsible for the rescue of over 1080 Jews, downed aviators and political refugees.

On the completion of cataloguing, the materials will be available for historical research.  This collection has no parallel in World War II underground and rescue studies. Please visit this website often to learn about other opportunities for teaching and learning as they are developed by the Foundation.
