-Who was he? Bert Bochove was working in Finland as a mill manager. At first he joined his two older brothers in running the family retail buissness in their native town, Woubrugge. He borrowed money to buy a drugstore in Huizen, a fishing town of 10 thousand on the Zuilder Zee. The drugstore was on the ground floor of a fine corner building, with spacious living quarters above.
-What did he do? He sold soap for the normal price and in those times it was unbelieable. Having that soap in his new store was a tremendous advertisement. He took the good false papers and took them out of Japp's wife's hand and took them to Huizen with him and they stayed in his house for a couple of months. Slowly he found bad things out about the good false papers and then put them out of his house. He had a room for Ans who got in trouble with the Germans, He had more jewish people who were living in the attic. He took things easy and let the consequences come later, he said it was good that his family had the place too, because it saved his and his family life.
-Why do we remember him?- because Bert Bochove was very caring and polite and he showed alot of love towards the many people asking alot from him. He took things easy and was not worrying about the consequences. He built things held things for the benefit of others and he made sure everyone was alright before himself, he let about 10-12 people into his home for the safety of him and them.
