(Deze pagina is niet nog vertaald in het Nederlands.)

The Oxford University Press will publish Ordinary Heroes: The Dutch-Paris Escape Line 1942-1945 in the Fall of 2017 or Spring of 2018

Ordinary Heroes  (the title is under review by the OUP) is the second WW II history written by Megan Koreman, Ph.D.  Her first work The Expectation of Justice: France 1944-1946 was published by the Duke University Press in 1999.

Ordinary Heroes documents a history that has remained, to this date, hidden due to restrictions on access to WW II documents in European archives.  These documents reveal how escaping Jews, Allied servicemen and others were hidden, clothed, and provided with documents essential to their escape by the over 300 ordinary citizens who made up the Dutch-Paris escape line.

Dr. Koreman’s new book is based on eight years of research at 31 European and U.S. archives.  The Dutch edition will be published by the Boom Publishing Company in Amsterdam this November.
