The Ambiguity of Virtue: Gertrude Van Tijn
and the Fate of Dutch Jews
(Harvard University Press, 2014)

With author Bernard Wasserstein

German-Jewish social worker Gertrude Van Tijn worked with the Nazi-appointed Jewish Council in Amsterdam and enabled many Jews to escape. Some later called her a heroine for the choices she made; others denounced her as a collaborator. Wasserstein's book explores the wrenching dilemmas that confronted Jews under Nazi occupation.
