During the German occupation of the Netherlands, 1940 to 1945, all Jews were ordered to register the religion of their grandparents, according to a description of the book on Amazon.

Hans Calmeyer was appointed to adjudicate “doubtful cases.” He used his assignment to save at least 3,700 Jews from deportation and death.

Nussbaum — née Hannelore Klein — tells in her book how Calmeyer declared her mother non-Jewish and deleted her and her family from the deportation lists, saving them from death.
