Re: [weihsien_camp] merry Christmas

I echo the Holiday sentiments. Merry Christmas to all! Our last Christmas in China was in Tsingtao, the internment camp before Weihsien, and we children participated in a Christmas play.

Re: [weihsien_camp] Christmas 2016

We too send our good wishes for this festive season and for health and happiness in 2017.

One of our family books this Christmas is “For the Glory”, the latest on Eric Liddell.

We are so grateful to you, Leopold, for all your work on the beloved Weihsien site all these years.
It has been a wonderful source of interest and information for our family, and repository of otherwise forgotten memories. Also it is a research tool for many others.

All the best.

[weihsien_camp] Christmas 2016

Thank you Leopold for your kind wishes! To all the former camp inmates, a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!

In September a book was published, written by my niece, about my father’s life, Frans de Jongh, who left for China after the 1st world war in 1919 as a bachelor and made his carreer as a business man with the Holland China Trading company. After his second leave, he brought my mother to China and the whole family remained there until 1946.

Our years of internment in Weihsien are also mentioned and I often think of the 2 Christmas’s we spent in camp.

Alas, the book is written in Dutch and concerns not only the family history but also the political and economical situation at that time. On the site there are some pictures and especially the blogs are interesting. If you are interested you can find it on http://hierinhetoostenalleswel.nl/

Its quite a volume, containing more that 400 pages!

Enjoy your Christmas holidays!
Anne de Jongh
