British broadcaster Stephen Fry delves into the courageous wartime feats of two often overlooked LGBTQ+ heroes of the Dutch resistance, whose actions saved countless lives and defied the Nazis. Amidst the WWII occupation of the Netherlands, Willem Arondeus, an openly gay painter, and Frieda Belinfante, a pioneering lesbian cellist, harnessed their artistic talents to shield Jewish citizens. Their audacious missions encompassed forging identity cards, orchestrating a daring arson attack on the Nazi records office, and clandestine meetings with benefactors like Henry Heineken, all while outsmarting the oppressive regime. Fry’s sincere admiration eloquently illuminates these unsung champions whose devotion to inclusivity and the rights of the oppressed resonates to this day.
