My parents just returned from a trip to the Netherlands where Dad was filmed by a TV station in Groningen for a TV show about his family's emigration from Holland in 1952. Dad was followed by a TV camera for 3 days - they shot hours of footage which will be condensed into a 30 minute program (in Dutch). In the following pictures Mom sent me, I was thrilled to see the places which John & I visited with Mom & Dad in 2003:
The Christian Reformed Church in Bedum. Dad is talking about the 1944 split in the church.
Top of the dike at Noordpoulderzijl. It is very windy and scenic up there. That is a mighty tall Dutch lady there seeing as Dad is about 6 foot!
Dad is being interviewed in front of the car dealership in Bedum which his father owned. He is next to his cousin Aaf whose father took over the dealership in 1952
Candlelit breakfast at the B&B where they stayed.
