This is the story of the Postma familiy. A family of hardworking entrepreneurial people, who no doubt wanted the best for their children.  Their kids all had own talents and deployed their own initiatives, but deeply disagreed on fundamental issues during World War II. This drove them apart so much that some of their children never met their grandparents and cousins never heard of each others existence. The events of the warperiod have had consequences as far reaching as today, for ever changing who we are and how we view life. Believe it or not.

A sad story, which started off so hopefully at the beginning of the 20th century, here:
