Henderson’s father was a Dutch resistance fighter who was captured as he was getting ready to blow up the shipyards in Rotterdam to prevent the Nazis from using them.
He survived almost five years at the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany and then waited 11 years to be allowed to immigrate to America with his wife and daughters, including Henderson.
Henderson’s book tells the stories she pieced together from her parents’ lives and her father’s legacy for his children.
