Gemeente Zutphen gaf het goede voorbeeld door ons initiatief voor een Stolpersteine APP moreel en financieel te ondersteunen. Dank daarvoor!
Only 30 of the 500 Jews of Zutphen, survived the war and persecution. Floor survived thanks to the Dutch Underground and her own quick reactions. She stayed in different places with different people, Jews and Christians, until the Underground placed her at the farm of the Goosens family in Liessel, South-Holland. This deeply religious Catholic family risked their livelihood and lives to save our mother and other Jews. Our mother worked on the farm; only when the occupation ended did she learn that the Goosens family had hidden and fed other Jews also.
In recognition for his deeds Frans Goosens was awarded the status of "Righteous among the Nations", by Yad Vashem, The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority. This is lsrael's greatest recognition of people who saved Jews during the Holocaust all over the world.
After WWII our mother, your daughter and sister, emigrated to Palestine, which soon became Israel. She and her beloved husband, Max Langer, of blessed remembrance and the two of us children formed a small family, which has grown. Our mother now has eight grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Unfortunately she was not able to attend this ceremony for health reasons, but she sends her greetings to all of you.
Toni and I, on behalf of our mother and ourselves, would like to thank:
- Ellen Hamburg, a cousin of our mother, who made the effort to corne here today; we know it is not easy for her to travel. She is accompanied by her and our old friends,
- Dr. Hans and Celine Joostens, who kindly kept us updated on the Stolpersteine project in Holland.
We also would like to mention the "Gerda" prayer-group, which is named for Gerda Boekholt of blessed memory, who was our mothers best friend in Zutphen. Dear Riet, Inneke, Wim and Betsy, we are really moved by your attendance, and thank you for your support over many years.
We would like to especially thank our friend Bart Mendelssohn, who shared with us his profound knowledge of the Jews of Zutphen in general, and the story of the Hamburg-Glaser family in particular. He assisted us willingly in many ways.
We would like to thank our correspondent at the Stolpersteine Stichting, Mr. Anjo Lodewijks, without whom this ceremony would not have been arranged.
We thank Mr. Gunter Demnig for creating this memorial for you, dear Grandparents and Aunt, a place of remembrance of you.
Thank you to all the guests who honored the memory of our grandparents and aunt, and our mother and us by attending this important ceremony.
