In Memoriam: Iwan and Jettie http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/7071/iwan.html Survivor Hans Vanderwerff shares his story: ” Memories of the war years are for the most part unpleasant for me. I successfully managed to block out that part of the past which deals with my childhood years. I try to remember, but when I do I see mostly still pictures before me. However, the following episode I vividly remember. I was thirteen years old at the time. I lived with my family in the Netherlands. The year was 1943.”
