This 1941 false identification was used by Anna Philine Nathans-Paerl, mother of Vera Nathans. Anna used this identification during the war until it was discovered that she was Jewish and then she was sent to Bergen-Belsen.
This 1964 photograph was taken at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and shows Vera with members of her family along with one of the nurses, Corrie Blauuw, who hid her during the war and her family. Also seen in the photograph is Nico Visjager, who was hidden with Vera during the war. Corrie protected the two children by claiming that they were her twins.
