MEI 1940 - DE WAARHEID VAN WONS
A documentary by Tom Verheul
In German historic books about the German invasion of Friesland, it was said that the Frisian defenders fled immediately after seeing their adversaries. Recent research has shown however, that Dutch people fought bravely in small village Wons. They gave up when their only cannon came to be out of bullets. Jacob Topper has done lots of investigating on de Wonsstelling. Relative Fokkinga sees the outcome as rehabilitation of his father and the defenders of Wons.
