Laudatory: We do exist! When does the world start believing in us?

1. What would I do?

As a sixteen-year-old girl I saw the movie The Girl with the Red Hair, a Dutch production about Hannie Schaft, one of the most famous heroines of the Dutch resistance during the Second World War. At that time, I was touched by the courage of this woman to rise up against the occupier and to fight for the liberation of the Netherlands. I remember a discussion in class: What would I do in similar circumstances? Would I have the same courage to stand up and resist when my country was suffering under a dictatorship or an occupation?
