    "The Resistance Banker"

    "Risking his family and future, a banker in occupied Amsterdam slows the Nazi war machine by creating an underground bank to fund the resistance"

    Netflix 2018 2hr 3mins.

    Cast Barry ATsma, Jacob Derwig, Pierre Bokma.

    Director Joram Lursen.

    Features some very, very brave individuals who took it upon themselves to filter Banks money to feed Jewish families and others who were resisting the Germans.

    All the "loans" etc were accounted for after the war and none of the individuals involved profited, personally.

    The brains behind the operation was finally recognised by the Dutch Government in 2010 with a statue to him being erected outside a Bank in Amsterdam.

    By today's standard, a half billion euros would have been the equivalent sums involved.

    An excellent film.
