Ans van Dijk

Dutch-Jewish collaborator who betrayed Jews to Nazi Germany during World War II.

Van Dijk was arrested on Easter Sunday 1943 by the Sicherheitsdienst […] After promising to work for the SD, van Dijk was released. Pretending to be a member of the resistance, she offered to help Jews find hiding places and obtain false papers. In this way, she trapped at least 145 people (including her own brother and his family). Some 85 of her victims later died in concentration camps. She may have been responsible for the deaths of as many as 700 people
