Re: [weihsien_camp] Camp list.

Dear Sylvia,

Of course I remember you well- on June 28 I sent you a long mail with all my camp memories regarding you and your family. I also sent you a summary of the lives of my parents and of the siblings. If you’ve lost it, I could send another copy.

My home address is A. Knüppe- de Jongh
Kuipershaven 116,
3311 AM Dordrecht. Nederland

Do add me to the list of persons interested in your book, and let me pay for it. I am sure my sister Louise would also like to receive a copy.

Her address is
Louise de Jongh- Toewater, 6620 Evergreen Ave. Sebastopol, Ca. 95472 USA.

Re: [weihsien_camp] Camp list.

Dear Annie,

That would make you four years older than me and much more adept on the computer.

I am trying to get your picture off the e-mail to show my friends and use when my book called "One Leaf in Time" comes out.

I hope it is OK with you.

I guess I played with Henrietta in the Camp. Do you remember me?

Happy Valentines Day and keep safe.

Yours truly,
Sylvia Prince

RE: [weihsien_camp] Re Sister Eustella

Yes, Anne, you are right - she did stay and I have much evidence of that. I think they may have fixed that on the site. Yes, she was fro Tsingtao. She went back there after the war too, and her total time in China was from 1929 until 1949. I am working towards writing a book about her so if you have more memories to share I would love it. You can correspond with me in any way that is easiest for you.

[weihsien_camp] Re Sister Eustella

Dear Kelly,

In Nov. 2013 we corresponded by mail about your greataunt. I clearly remembered her, but there was some discussion whether she remained in our camp until our liberation. In the list she is marked as having left with the other missionaries after a few months- but I believe she stayed with us till the end.

However, my old Tientsin school was run by the congregation of Missionaries of Mary, a Canadian or French order and I believe that your aunt was from Tsingtao and was the principal of the school there. If you like I can send you a copy of our mails.

kind greetings,

Anne - I wonder if you have memories of Sister Eustella that you have not shared with me? She was my great Aunt and was the Principal, I believe.

[weihsien_camp] Fw: Anneke Knüppe- de Jongh heeft foto's met u gedeeld

This was the first class in St. Joseph's school Tientsin in 1936. The girl to the right I remember as Mary Gibson ??

We were having writing lessons. Sister Luiga ??? was in charge. I wonder if others also remember the school.

I am sitting in the middle of the lst row.

Re: [weihsien_camp] Weihsien documentary -- Why no Wang ChengHan in the film?

Dear Mary, all internee members and friends,

Both the Chinese and English versions of the documentary "The Forgotten Weihsien Internment Camp" were completed and in the hands of the government. Hope it will be broadcasted soon without further editing.

Wang ChengHan and all of you attending the 70th Anniversary celebration at Weifang were covered in this documentary too. I tried to include the photos from the 50th and 60th anniversaries and the reunion photo in U.K. In 1988 which I got from Estelle Horne.

Thank you to all of you whom I have learnt a lot from!

[weihsien_camp] Weihsien documentary -- Why no Wang ChengHan in the film?

I’ve been asked why Weihsien liberator Wang ChengHan was not pictured in the recently broadcast of Memories of Weihsien.

For this documentary, the production team filmed its interviews in the United States in December, 2014.

The producer told me then that they expected to have the film completed for possible broadcast in very early 2016 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the ending of World War Two and of the liberation of the camp.

it was the end end of March, 2015, that brought the miracle of the grandson of Wang ChengHan connecting me to our last living Weihsien liberator. After that, it took me several weeks to determine that this was not a hoax.

I do not know what delayed the broadcast of the documentary.
