Herinneren: Het verhaal van Maurits Kiek…Remembering: The Maurits Kiek Story

Director: Cheryl Halpern.

“Herinneren: Het verhaal van Maurits Kiek…Remembering: The Maurits Kiek Story” presents one man’s courage to return to Nazi-occupied Europe and serve as a covert MI-9 agent. His unwavering determination to stand up, in the face of overwhelming odds, and fight the perpetrators of evil was acknowledged in Den Haag, The Hague, in 2015. He is a hero for us to remember as we, too, are challenged to respond to human injustice and cruelty.
