For Me, the War Began in 1945

Speakers: Diana Fein-Sealtiel & David Rob Sealtiel
The lecture will be in Hebrew

David Robert Sealtiel was born in Amsterdam on 18 March 1940, a few months before the Germans invaded the Netherlands. Robbie, a two-and-a-half-year-old toddler, was transferred to a town in North Holland. There he was hidden in a loving Christian family until 1946.  When he was returned to his biological mother, the real difficulties began for him. His whole world was turned upside down. From a Christian child, a Frisian speaker, from a small town, with a loving family, he was suddenly a Jewish child, a Dutch speaker, from a large city, with a disturbed mother and countless difficulties. Only when he reached the age of 13, at his bar mitzvah ceremony, did the rabbi tell him things that once again shook his world, but positively. Thus began his quest to find his father's family, the father he never knew.
