Sixty eight years ago, a Dutch family in Amsterdam risked everything to hide an 18-month-old Jewish girl from the Nazis at the height of World War II. For two and a half years, the Hakkens family hid Elli Szanowski in a cupboard to keep her safe after Nazis killed her Father, and her mother fled to Switzerland. Richard and Marcel Hakkens were just little boys when their parents took the child in. After the war, Elli went with family members to Argentina, and in the 1960s, the Hakkens family immigrated to New Zealand. The boys never saw Elli again. Until yesterday. Marcel's wife Gloria spent years trying to find Elli. Read about her quest in her own words.
