Many Jews were hidden during the Holocaust in western Belgium's Hainaut region, where the Laroses lived, according to Dan Michman, the head of Yad Vashem's International Institute for Holocaust Research.

"There were a few networks of rescuers of Jews" in that area with the German military's presence relatively light, Michman said.
Of Belgium's nearly 70,000 Jews, 25,000 were killed in the Holocaust, usually after being deported to Auschwitz from Mechelin, near Antwerp, he said. But rather than being rounded up as in other countries, most deportees were apprehended at the border or turned in by non-Jews.
"There was always a danger," he said. "Denunciations played an important role."
But Michman said the Catholic Church as an institution - about 95 percent of Belgians of that era were Catholic - exerted a powerful influence in encouraging people to hide Jews in seminaries, monasteries and homes, as well as in deterring the turning in of Jews.
"When the priest of a church urged people to save Jews, then even people who didn't save kids or maybe were pro-German wouldn't say anything because the town or the priest would come out against them," Michman said.
