I’ve been living in America for some 18 years now, but I cannot forget the Netherlands. I was born on 20 May 1946 in Amsterdam. My father, Mozes Wessel, and my mother, Anna Wessel, survived the war, but many other family members did not, unfortunately. I cannot forget that I never knew my grandparents or aunts or uncles. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to meet up now and again for a family reunion?
To make a contribution to this fantastic memorial, I have made a donation for my grandfather and grandmother: Leon Wessel and Mietje Wessel-Slier. I’ve been to Poland twice with the Auschwitz Committee, on the second occasion with my current husband. His family fled from Kiev, and not many of them survived either.
