I am delighted to make contact with you.I have also made contact with Rob Roeleveld, whose wife's Aunt, Magdalena Brugman wasmarried to Hendrik den Hollander; she was his first wife. Rob told me that Magdalena Brugman was Eric's Mother.
I'm not sure how much you know of EH den Hollander's fatal crash.I can give you eye witness accounts of it - one given by my late father who lived with his parents and siblings on the farm where the crash occurred.The Hellcat plane missed the farmhouse and hayshed by yards and crashed into a field.
I would love to hear a bit more about the family background - I know they suffered a lot as a result of WW2. I am trying to build up a picture of Eric den Hollander's short life and that of his family and family history. Rob Roeleveld has very kindly sent me a few photos - one showing Eric and his twin brother and their sister as children.
I am going out this evening so unfortunately haven't more time now to write more - but if you contact me at my email address firstname.lastname@example.org I will be happy to share with you what I know about the crash and I would welcome any infornmation you can share with me about the family background.
Again, I thank you for taking the time to contact me. I am absolutely thrilled to hear from you as I was to hear from Rob.
