Synopsis
Herman Scheerboom from Amsterdam was born into a half Dutch — half German catholic family. Growing up in the red light district of the city, he joined the Dutch Communist Party and was therefore considered to be the "black sheep" of the family. He fought in the Spanish Civil War, was taken prisoner and deported into a concentration camp. Luckily he was liberated by the Red Cross — after 4 years as camp inmate. Then, Scheerboom managed to catch a ship to England, where he right away joined the foreign Dutch forces to continue the fight against Fascism. He took part in the Operation Overlord, liberating France, Belgium and finally the Netherlands and his hometown Amsterdam from Nazi occupation.
Later, Herman Scheerboom became a well known photographer during Amsterdam's Roaring 60ies and 70ies.
