my name is moshe finkler, I was born on October 9, 1926, From The Hague Netherlands
moshe was brought up in a religious jewish family in the hague, the center of the government of the netherlands.his father was a businessman, and his mother raised their seven children.
1933 -39 moshe was starting eight grade when the war [ world war || ] began in september 1939. at home, his family discussed the terrible things happening to the jews in germany.
moshe believed, more than ever, that the jewish people needed their own homeland [ the yishuv].
1940-44 germany invaded the netherlands, reaching the hague on may 10,1940. when the nazis began rounding up jews in the summer of 1942, moshe and his family escaped to belgium, where no one knew them and where they hoped they could pass as christians.
