Jeroen finds a photo album that evokes difficult memories for his grandmother, Helena. She tells Jeroen about the German occupation of the Netherlands during the Second World War, and the loss of her Jewish best friend, Esther. Helena believes that her own father, a policeman and Nazi sympathizer, delivered Esther to the Nazis and that she died in a concentration camp. But after hearing her story, Jeroen makes a discovery and Helena realizes that her father kept an important secret from her. Developed by The Anne Frank House to teach children about the Holocaust.
