|Brigitte Boon - van der Mark|

At first I started to investigate the genealogy of my father’s family in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and The Hague. But, as our youngest son turned 1, I started to investigate the Jewish past of my mother in law. As in many families the war was not mentioned, but I found the name of an aunt that my husband never knew of, because she was, at age 27, deported with her two little boys, age 4 and 1, to Sobibor. Since I was at that moment also a mother of 2 sons, age 4 and 1, I decided to investigate the genealogy of the Vleeschhouwer-family and all related families. A continuous search.
