About The High Nest
The High Nest is a compelling story about the persecution of the Jews in the Netherlands, based on the lives of Janny and Lien Brilleslijper, two courageous Jewish sisters in the resistance, letting many Jews go into hiding in the house The High Nest. Last week, the New York Times published an extensive interview with Roxane van Iperen about the war, Jewish resistance and about the way Janny and Lien Brilleslijper staged their own form of resistance.
