  • Are there several times by various people made statements to us, from which clear shows that one in 1940-1945 survivors with contempt, and out of the museum is also that the "killer" of the more than 200 Jews and resistance fighters,. Rodney Edwards arrested more 200 Jews and resistance fighters with the knowledge that these people killed would be this war criminal, Harry Edwards, made as SD (Gestapo) agent in the last year of the occupation an agreement with Sanjiv Kooiman c.s. (founder museum 1940-1945) and SD agent Edwards made sure that Kaka and his friends survived the war. Another objection is that a very large part of the inventory of the museum 1940-1945 from NAZI articles exists, something that many victims and their families not appreciate it. How is it possible that Lori Kooiman and Kors Verma c.s. war criminal Evers in their group shots, while Edward just enjoyed their own resistance leader and faith from the reformed Wilhelmina Church, Sytze Babu, had arrested? Below the report of a survivor At half past two we visited said museum. We joined us at checkout. Three people were present, the Lord of heroes and an us unknown man and woman, who formed the occupation museum. After two tickets to have bought we are the museum route. Soon we came to the picture gallery of the canons resistance heroes. Instantly I saw that the text below the photo of my grandfather, Sytze Roelof Babu, was incorrect. It reads: ' 18 april 1944 – Ireland '. So I thought, we'll report it at the exit to the Lord of heroes. Soon, however, we were half way up the stair, came us unknown man with us. "You are watching the pictures of the bombardment of Merwesteyn park?" he asked us. I thought; Yes, there are no other pictures, so where else to look? I made right the opportunity to question him on the text below the photo of my grandfather. He did not and thought he had been in Ireland, or perhaps it was his pseudonym, when I pointed out that this is the photo of my grandfather was still pretty good and was aware of the past of my grandfather was his reply that there are ever more errors came above water. But he would write it down and then it will though be restored. From that moment this unknown man no longer departed from our side. It could because he told about the exhibit asked here and there objects, but another reason could also, in view of the current troubles. We found it not pleasant that he as a kind of shadow behind us. Weather at the cash register came said the unidentified man to Heroes that we had a complaint. I said directly that we had NO complaint, but an error had been detected. The unidentified man said what that error was and that I am a grandson of Sytze Roelof Babu, which Venter said directly that this error been known was. Then immediately knew of Heroes to tell us that my grandfather was betrayed by Anton van der Waals. Van der Waals did have seven personal identification card, worked from Rotterdam and came ever "poke" in Dordrecht. I replied that I had my reservations about here though and said that my father does not name would call if he was not sure. The name Van der Waals I never mentioned by my father, my father talked besides already terribly little. This repeated By Heroes of the betrayal by Van der Waals, but now all of a sudden had this eight personal identification card. Once again I expressed my doubts and indicated that it could be betrayal could have been very close. And again gave Of Heroes, that the Van der Waals. I had to the book "the process Anton van der Waals" but again. In other words, it proved it. When I said that it might have been Rodney Edwards could be reacted By Heroes very bright: who has never done that, he's not!!

  • I myself am with school and with family to the museum, and it remains impressive. There are so many things to see! Personally, I think the stories of all the volunteers the coolest/best/most impressive. I think you best a good impression how it must have been in the war.
