I am the granddaughter of Mr Jozeph van Cleef and I would like to share with you the story of my grandfather – whom I never knew – and of his wife Agnès van Cleef-Smekens and their daughter, my mothers, Colette van Cleef-Keymeulen. My grandmother was Dutch but lived in France and Belgium. I have relatives in the Netherlands who collected many documents about the whole family. In July 2013 they organized a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam for all Van Cleefs. That weekend we also visited the Jewish Historical Museum. My grandfather’s name is also on the ‘Mur de la Honte’ at the Holocaust Museum in Paris.
