Her father hates the Anabaptists and wants to get rid of the whole movement!

This story is told through the eyes of Bettje and Jan, children of Menno Simons, who lived almost 500 years ago.

It was against the laws of that time for him to preach so Menno’s preaching was done in secret at night to small groups.
