Huib Minderhoud was a six-year-old boy who, in September 1938, saw an almost endless row of farm work horses driven past his parental home in ‘t Harde on the Veluwe. His father was “head of the school there”, the house was an official residence built attached to the school. “It’s mobilization,” my father said. “Those horses all go to “De Knobbel to pull the guns!”
That is how the memories of a five-year war began that he experienced in the village of Oostendam / Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht and wants to share with his readers.
