Review Amsterdam

Op 4 mei 2014, waren bij de Open Joodse Huizen op de Nieuwe Keizersgracht 24 in twee sessies zo'n 85 mensen totaal als bezoekers aanwezig.
Miriam Bolle en Betty van Essen hebben kleine stukjes uit hun geschiedenis met ons gedeeld. Aangrijpend, helder, feitelijk, met emoties en waar mogelijk met humor verteld.

A very extensive programme had been set up in Amsterdam, with over 50 gatherings on 23 different locations. In addition, the programme Homes of Resistance took place. Open Jewish Homes alone attracted approximately 2300 visitors.

Brink 45, Betondorp – In the former library, around 120 visitors listened during three gatherings to the stories of Herbert Sarfatij, Sander Hartog and Aart Janszen about the (pre-)war Betondorp.
Old playmates, who saw each other back again after seventy years, shared their memories ofto the village under the watchful eye of present residents and other interested persons.

Nieuwe Keizersgracht – On Nieuwe Keizersgracht 24, 85 visitors were present during two gatherings.
Miriam Bolle and Betty van Essen shared small stories from their history. Gripping, clear, factual, emotional, and where possible told in a humorous way.
