<p>According to the <a href="https://nypost.com/2019/12/14/meet-the-dutch-girls-who-seduced-nazis-and-lured-them-to-their-deaths/"><em>New York Post</em></a>, Truus Oversteegen was three months shy of her 17th birthday when Germany invaded the Netherlands in May, 1940. Oversteegen, a newly minted member of the Dutch resistance, was involved in hiding Jewish children, homosexuals and political dissidents in safe houses throughout her hometown of Haarlem - approximately 12 miles west of Amsterdam. </p>

<p>It as after a Nazi murdered a child in front of its family that she <strong>decided to take a more active role in the resistance</strong>.</p>

<p>"He grabbed the baby and hit it against the wall," she describes in the book. "The father and sister had to watch. They were obviously hysterical. The child was dead."</p>

<p>Truus took aim at the Nazi and shot him dead.</p>

<p>"That wasn’t an assignment," she said. "But I don’t regret it . . . We were dealing with cancerous tumors in our society that you had to cut out like a surgeon."</p>

<p><strong>Assassins</strong></p>

<blockquote>
<p>Truus, her younger sister, Freddie, and law student Hannie Schaft were among a handful of young women who took on clandestine roles to destabilize Nazis during the Second World War. While women’s resistance work was largely confined to spying, code-breaking and typing, few actively dared to take on the work of the Dutch trio — <strong>as underground assassins</strong>. -<a href="https://nypost.com/2019/12/14/meet-the-dutch-girls-who-seduced-nazis-and-lured-them-to-their-deaths/"><em>New York Post</em></a></p>

<p>"These women never saw themselves as heroines," writes author Sophie Poldermans, a Netherlands-based human-rights activist. "They were extremely dedicated and believed they had no other option but to join the resistance. <strong>They never regretted what they did during the war.</strong>"</p>

<p>Truus's younger sister Freddie was just 14 when she started working in the resistance - often dispatched as a courier of vital information during the occupation. Later, Freddie, Truus and Hannie Schaft <strong>worked to seduce Nazis </strong>by going to bars in makeup and bright red lipstick to pick up soldiers and lure them to their deaths.</p>

<p>"Ha Heinz, come here," the girls would say, pretending to be drunk in front of potential targets.</p>

<blockquote>
<p>Hannie, barely 20 when the Netherlands was invaded, made a point of teaching herself German for the work. <strong>Lithe and striking, with red hair and milky white skin, she became an expert at starting seemingly casual conversations with Dutch Nazis and German soldiers</strong>. Suggesting that they accompany her on romantic walks to the woods, they would often be shot dead by her male comrades who were lying in wait.</p>

<p>While the three young women often relied on the men of the resistance for the ambush and shooting, <strong>they were not shy about using guns themselves and became expert at shooting targets from their bikes</strong>. In addition to German soldiers, they also went after Dutch collaborators, Poldermans said.</p>

<p>“<strong>They were killers, but they also tried hard to remain human</strong>,” said Poldermans, 38. “<strong>They tried to shoot their targets from the back so that they didn’t know they were going to die.</strong>” -<a href="https://nypost.com/2019/12/14/meet-the-dutch-girls-who-seduced-nazis-and-lured-them-to-their-deaths/"><em>New York Post</em></a></p>

<p>The sisters have refused to reveal how many people they've gunned down, saying "You never ask a soldier how many people he's killed."</p>
