Wonder of Women Festival (2010)

Simply Human tells the story of Mrs. Hans Snoek, a 90 year old Dutch dancer who has dedicated her life to helping people. Famous in the Netherlands for being the creator of the Scapino Ballet (an adult group dancing for children), the Krakeling theater (a children's theater) and many more artistic and humanistic activities, including the creation - just three years before - of the Toverbal ("Magic Ball": a foundation dedicated to help refugee children in the Netherlands to overcome their traumatic experiences through the experience of Arts), for all these contributions she's received top honors from the Dutch Queen and other Dutch institutions.

Famous as she was, there's one part of Hans Snoek's life that was little known and that sheds light on her unique character. During World War II she hid Jewish people in her home in Amsterdam, and for risking her life in this way she's received the Righteous Among the Nations Award from Yad Vashem.
