24th April 2018
My quest has come to an end.
I am finished,
I am done.
It has left me drained but fulfilled.
During the last phase of the quest I donated a copy of Jan’s story to several institutions in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
Finally, on the 21st and 22nd of April 2018, I offered copies of the book to the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Munich, the KZ-Flossenbürg memorial archives and the village of Saal an der Donau.
The latter two are the places where Jan was robbed of his life.
I also offered Jakob Haiblum, a survivor from the Saal concentration camp, a copy.
It is now 73 years since the liberation of these two concentration camps.
I hope that by donating a book to these historically burdened places people will come to learn more about this bit of Dutch history, as very little is known about the Schicksal of NN-prisoners in Bavaria.
This quest is now done and complete.
My part in this endeavour to make sure that Jan’s story will not be lost has been accomplished. I have made his story available in several countries.
It is now up to others to educate themselves and read.
It has been quite a journey.
