War stories | THE DAILY HERALD

Author of the World War II autobiography “Schoolboy in Wartime – Memories of My Early Years” Gerard van Veen (right) was invited by Rotary Club St. Maarten-Mid Isle to be its guest speaker last week Tuesday, at which time he presented his latest book to the Club.

Dutch journalists from newspapers such as Noordhollands Dagblad and De Telegraaf have been seeking out the veteran author for interviews or a review copy of the book that is centred in the Dutch city of Alkmaar during the Nazi occupation. Club president Anjali Manek (left) made a cultural arts contribution to the author. Photo courtesy Gerard van Veen.
