    The teacher who saved hundreds of Jewish children

    Deciding who to save and who to leave was "the most difficult" thing Johan van Hulst ever had to do, he said

    Some of the children Johan van Hulst helped rescue were so young that they no longer remember the daring acts that saved their lives.

    Van Hulst, who died on 22 March aged 107, was a key part of the network that helped at least 600 Dutch babies and children escape the Nazis.

    Those children survived thanks to carefully orchestrated operations that smuggled them away right in front of the Nazis seeking to send them to concentration camps.
