My father was an avid photographer and filmmaker.
His personal archive not only comprised of many letters and documents, but also included a large size photo album. This album contains dozens of pictures, which I presume were taken in London in the period 1943 – 1945. There is no mention of dates, and only first names have been listed unfortunately. I have divided these pictures into five categories:
- Huize Florys (Florys house), where my father was able to rest and relax for a few weeks after his arrival in London.
- Oranjehaven, the gathering place of the ‘Engelandvaarders’, where he got appointed as Honorary Member.
- Department of Home Affairs, who were 'willing' to employ my father at one of their institutions.
- London, pictures of Hyde Park and surrounding streets.
- Personal portraits, carried out on assignment.
I have also added some post-war photos which are directly related to the period 1940 – 1945.
Naturally, any suggested additions or improvements to this content would be very much appreciated.
