The correspondence begins in 1959 and ends in 1963. Four letters are hand written, 5 are typed and all are very long; all but 2 are double sided on 8 1/2 x 11" paper.

A wonderful offering.

PHILIPS: TIJDENS DE BEZETTING [PHILIPS: DURING THE OCCUPATION]

Printed on one side of the paper, each page has a full color illustration depicting events leading to the takeover of the Phillips Corporation by the Nazi occupation of Holland. It presents events during the occupation including one page of concentration camp members at work in the factory. On 9 May 1940, the Philips directors learned that the German invasion of the Netherlands was to take place the following day. Having prepared for this, Anton Philips and his son in law Frans Otten, as well as other Philips family members, fled to the United States. Frits Philips, the son of Anton, was the only Philips family member to stay in the Netherlands and run the factory. He saved the lives of 382 Jews by convincing the Nazis that they were indispensable for the production process at Philips. In 1943 he was sent to a concentration camp for 4 months because a strike at his factory reduced production. For his actions in saving the hundreds of Jews, he was recognized by Yad Vashem in 1995 as a "Righteous Among the Nations". Frits Philips has written the foreward with W.F. Otten.
