Holocaust Award
Hendrick and Kees Scheffer lived in Holland and kept a Jewish couple hidden from the Nazis for two years. The couple have passed away. Their daughter, Henny Scheffer of Nanton, will accept an award from The Calgary Jewish Community in their honour. Ruth Tennenholtz has come to Calgary from Israel to attend the ceremony. It was Ruth’s late parents who were saved by the Scheffers.
