I want to thank Ed van Rijswijk for the generous and amazing work that he did regarding Holocaust related records, Dutch translations, and Dutch records prior to, during, and after the Holocaust for members of my family. He helped to put these records together along with the records and stories that my family had in a way that helped to fill in some gaps and told a story.  He was even able to find newspaper articles written in the 1920's.  And he worked quickly and is fluent in both English and Dutch.  His grandparents had been awarded the Yad Vashem Medal and Certificate, Righteous Among the Nations, posthumously, in 2011, for hiding a young woman in Holland. Much thanks also to Jon Levinson for connecting Ed and I.  If you want to contact Ed, his email address is  erijswijk@... .
