Post #100-In loving memory

Weeks ago when I saw I was approaching 100 posts, I started to mull over what would be the perfect way to celebrate the blogosphere milestone.  Little did I know at the time that fate would lend a hand.  On June 13, 2007, my father Rabbi Nardus Groen, passed on from this world.  The English date coincides with the Hebrew date which falls next Saturday night and Sunday.  Being that this blog is set up to introduce the book Jew Face, any milestone relevant to the book is appropriate blogging material.  It is with that in mind I had determined a  long time ago that this week I would be focusing my efforts on here towards honoring my father.  This blog is called Holland’s Heroes because of the heroic behavior of the people in the book.  Jew and non-Jew, relative or not,  whose behavior during the worst of times in Holland, showed unimaginable bravery.  The book speaks of many, but it is primarily the story of my parents, Nardus and Sipora Groen.  With that premise I make this post, post number 100, an introduction to a week where I will be honoring and remembering my father.  If anyone has a story they wish to share it will be very welcomed.   I would love to post it in here or leave it as a comment.  And if you choose to buy the book this week in his memory let me know and I will be glad to post it.  Thanks to all of you.
