For many people who grew up in peacetime it is hard to imagine what it must have meant for people in hiding to have been locked up for a shorter or longer period trying to remain invisible for the German occupiers. 

Some hiders are not eager to talk about it. But if they do we hang on every word and listen carefully to what they have to tell us. The generation who is still able to talk about the war is continually diminishing.

By making the historical documentary series “Underdûkt yn Fryslan”, Tresoar and Omrop Fryslan want to tell stories about that time, stories the general public is hardly or not at all familiar with. Together they will represent a picture of hiding during the years of war in Friesland. The series will be broadcast weekly by Omrop Fryslan en NPO 2,  beginning on Saturday 29 April.
