Jewish Baseball Quiz

By YITZHAK BEN-CHONE

TORONTO (JTA) — A
Dutch-Canadian couple,
Wernart and Johanna van
Deventer, who hid Jews
from Nazis during the occu-
pation of Holland, were
honored last week by Israel
in Victoria, B.C.
The couple obtained sto-
len food coupons and false
identity papers and pro-
vided a hiding place in their
attic until 1944 when Wer-
''art van Deventer was ar-
ested and sent to a concen-
tration camp. He was re-
leased later that year.
David Ariel, Israel's Con-
sul General for Ontario and
Western Canada, came to
Victoria to give the couple
the Yad Vashem Righteous
Gentile Medal which is
awarded to people who
risked their lives to save
Jews.
The van Deventers came
to Canada with their two
children after the war and
opened a bicycle shop in
Victoria.

ing to Alvin Klugman,
