Although he'd left the Netherlands for England, one story from Bart van Es's childhood never left him: a young Jewish girl named Lientje had been taken in during the war by his relatives and hidden from the Nazis, then raised as one of their own. But after the war there was a falling out, and they were no longer in touch. What was the girl's side of the story, and where had she gone? So began an investigation that would consume Bart van Es's life. He learned that Lientje was now in her eighties and living in Amsterdam, and eventually they struck up a remarkable friendship. THE CUT OUT GIRL combines a powerful recreation of Lientje's harrowing story with the present-day account of Bart's efforts to piece it together, bringing old ghosts into the light.
