"Things we couldn't say is the true story of Diet [pronounced Deet] Eman, a young Dutch woman who, with her fiance, Hein Sietsma, risked everything to rescue Jews imperiled by Nazi persecution in occupied Holland during World War II. Throughout the years that Diet and Hein aided the Resistance - work that would cost Diet her freedom and Hein his life - their courageous effort ultimately saved the lives of hundreds of Dutch Jews." "This book is Diet Eman's account of that tumultuous period. The first-person narrative vividly captures the events of her brave saga - from her initial engagement with Hein in the Resistance operation, to her eventual arrest and imprisonment at the Vught concentration camp, to the final grim toll of the war that devastated all of Europe. Diary entries that Diet and Hein logged during the war as well as excerpts from personal letters that passed between the two young lovers detail their thoughts and emotions during those years." "Here is a story that has all the emotional impact of The Diary of Anne Frank and all the drama of The Hiding Place. Diet Eman's Things We Couldn't Say is an unforgettable story of heroism, faith, and - above all - love. It is also one of the great Christian stories of the twentieth century - the story of two people whose faith compelled them to stand up to the most sinister evil their generation has ever witnessed."--BOOK JACKET.
