Day 175 - The girls from Lille at Auschwitz and my dad's book - How I survived Auchwitz and Buchenwald Concentration Camps..

Tell the World Please, What Happened to us....
I am so happy that my dad's memoir is available in book form.  He had a rough journey but remained a happy and optimistic person throughout his life - the book is a great tribute to a fantastically brave and kind father and human being.  He got the message out to the world from the Girls from Lille in France who perished in the gas chambers in Auschwitz - the book is a tribute to these girls and other brave girls......

Day 174 - The pull of the polders - just because...


AND SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE - MY DAD'S BLOG IS INCREASING AT A STEADY AND SLOW PLACE

The Pull of the Poulders
An echo of the hope of the medieval Low Country emigrants to German lands is captured in the text of an old Flemish ballad:

“Naer Oostland willen wy ryden,
Naer Oostland willen wy mee,
Al over die groene heiden,
Frisch over die heiden.
Daer isser een betere stee
Als wy binnen
Oostland komen
Al onder dat hooge huis,
Daer worden wy binnen gelaten,
Frisch over die heiden;
Zy heeten ons willekom zyn.”[xix]
