The Lives She Saved, For The Humanity She Loved
Tina Strobos, famous woman of the Dutch resistance who sheltered more than 100 Jews during the Holocaust, recently passed away from cancer at the age of 91.
She risked her own life for total strangers. She found ingenious ways to forge travel documents. She let carpenters build hidden rooms in her own house. She was arrested multiple times and survived all the interrogations. Her house was searched multiple times. She didn’t fail.
“I never believed in God,” she said, “but I believed in the sacredness of life.”
So don’t ever ever ever let anyone tell you that we can’t be Good Without God.
