Je suis journaliste, ancienne correspondante à Paris et actuellement basée à Amsterdam. Ces dernières années, je me suis spécialisée dans l’art et j’écris donc essentiellement – mais pas uniquement – sur ce qu’il y a de beau à voir aux Pays-Bas. Ou là où je me trouve. Ne nous limitons pas !
A journalist, former correspondent in Paris, and now in Amsterdam, I specialise these days in writing about art (and sometimes literature, or other cultural topics) . So I tell you in these artcles about the worthwile exhibitions in the Netherlands and surrounding countries – and, as it may happen, about quite different matters. Or different places. No limits!

Hi Jacqueline, can you let us know which sources you have for Er st Cahn? he is the great grandfather.of.my husband and we are looking for all we manage to.find,
Hi Lena, the story of Ernst Cahn en Alfred Kohn and their ice cream parlour is well documented. There is also a plaque where the former ice cream parlour was, it is one of the places where local commemorations are held. There is a bridge named after them. In 1987, as a reporter, I followed the trial of Klaus Barbie in Lyon, and discovered that he had, as it were, ‘learned the trade » in Amsterdam. So I did a lot of research, found inevitably the story of what happened in and around Koco, and wrote about it in the book I published at the time (in Dutch). Bur that’s a long time agoz and I don’t remember what particular sources I consulted concerning your husband’s great-grandfather. One source is the NIOD,the Dutch institute for research on war. Nowadays, you should be able to find a lot on the internet, too. Give me a few days, and I’ll look it up in my books. Best, Jacqueline
Hi, yes, you are right, We have found a lot. What I haven’t found till now are the documents of Klaus Barbie, speaking 1987 about Ernst. Do you know any of it? would be amazing…thank you so much, best Lena
Hi Lena, I don’t remember him speaking about Ernst. The trial only concerned his crimes in and around Lyon. I must reread my own book to see what I found in that respect. I have one or two other books that might help. Sorry, I was quite busy the past dags, but I should be able to have a look today or tomorrow. Where are you, in which country? Have you been in touch with the Niod? Best, J
