Lest We Forget the Allied Armed Forces Who Liberated Gendringen-Wisch, Netherlands

I recently received a 450-page book from the Netherlands, entitled Opdat wij niet vergeten, Lest We Forget. Published on the 75th anniversary of liberation, it commemorates the bravery and lives of very many Allied armed forces who fought and died in the area of Gendringen-Wisch, Netherlands from 1940-1945. The epilogue includes an article by the area mayor and an article by me about my father’s experience in Gendringen, the first Dutch town he and his family lived in after escaping Germany in 1938.

Irene Stern Frielich regularly speaks about her father’s Holocaust survival experience and how she unraveled his story. She is a periodic blogger covering topics such as Holocaust and WWII history, current events, memory, and hope. She is also the owner of an award-winning instructional design consulting firm in Sharon, Massachusetts. Irene is deeply grateful to the eighteen courageous individuals who helped her family survive the Holocaust. She carries their legacy forward through her book and through her acclaimed multimedia presentations.
