CERTIFICATES CONFERRED ON BETTY GOUDSMIT-OUDKERK AND SIENY COHEN-KATTENGURG AMSTERDAM 29 SEPTEMBER, 2016 The Bnai B’rith World Center in Jerusalem and the committee for Recognition of Jews who Rescued Jews (JRJ) in the Second World War, founded in Jerusalem in the year 2000, is privileged to present this certificate to two very special ladies, now in their nineties but at the time barely twenty years old. The honor here bestowed on them is in recognition of having rescued hundreds of young Jewish children in the crèche in Amsterdam. We have just heard about Betty and the book written about her is just off the press and ready to begin its own life in the big world. About Sieny, her colleague and friend, some articles have already appeared in the press, one of them in the Dutch periodical Aanspraak a few years ago. Together with Mr. Franklin Weisz, the Head of B’nai B’rith Amsterdam, I am here to represent the Jerusalem Committee. This Committee was created to let the world know that there were Jews who participated in the underground rescue work as well as non-Jews. There were many Jews who were involved in this work either on their own or in organizations especially set up for this work in all countries under German occupation. The fact that the concept of Righteous among the Nations has become a familiar one to indicate non-Jews who hid and rescued Jews is due to the fact that a law was enacted in the Israeli Knesset in 1953 which mandated Yad Vashem to honor these heroes. As Jewish rescuers were not mentioned in this law, they have not been recognized as such and until this day almost no one knows about the many Jewish rescuers, although in fact there were many such people, both individuals and institutions. Our project to give certificates to these Jewish heroes has been going on for quite a few years now. Each year on Yom Hashoah, when the Holocaust is remembered, a ceremony takes place in a forest just outside Jerusalem planted to commemorate the six million murdered Jews, in which Jewish rescuers from different countries are honored. Hundreds of school children and soldiers of the Israeli army are invited to this ceremony. Since 2003 some 150 certificates of honor have been given on this occasion either to the rescuers themselves or to their closest descendants. For me this is a special honor, both as someone born before the war and as a native of this country, to present both of you with this certificate.
