One thing that I found fascinating about Frieda’s story was when she was on the road home from Hilversum, and she fell and broke several ribs. A man came up, helped her up, and calmed her (she was still very shaken from her encounter with the Gestapo). Frieda referred to him as a “good Samaritan,” but I believe that God had sent an angel to her rescue. He is so good- His timing is amazing!
Life in the Shadow of the Swastika is a captivating story of hope, courage, and forgiveness, and I truly enjoyed it. It’s a refreshing change from books like The Diary of Anne Frank, because God did not allow Frieda to be handed over to the Germans but survive. She did not know Him at the time, but still felt Him working in her life. Later, she came to a saving knowledge of Him and to this day, gives Him praise for her survival. I hope and pray that many souls will be touched by her story for many years to come.
