During the war, a young Dutch Mennonite woman, An Keuning-Tichelaar, and her husband, Hermann, were active in the non-violent resistance to the Nazi Germany occupation of the Netherlands and sheltered many people in their home, including Jewish refugees, members of the resistance and injured civilians. After the war they opened their home to Mennonite refugees who had fled Russia.
This book pieces together the wonderful stories of An and the Dutch Mennonites with the story of Lynn Kaplanian-Buller, who rediscovered the quilts years later, the story of Russian Mennonites in search of a new home after the war and the commitment of Mennonite Central Committee and the North Americans to provide relief, comfort and hope.
