Making Choices: The Dutch Resistance during World War II is a moving and well crafted first hand account of four Dutch survivors of the 1940 Nazi invasion of Holland who each helped to protect total strangers from certain death. The film explores the dramatic wartime lives of these Dutch citizens who took a stand to protect Jews and resist the overwhelming power of the Nazis during World War II.

This inspiring documentary tells their stories of fear and courage, danger and faith as they put their lives on the line to do what they thought was right. Featuring four participants in the Dutch Resistance who now make their home in America, Making Choices reveals what motivated them to risk everything to protect total strangers and the heavy price they paid for challenging the Nazis.
