Hans Van Gelder was born in 1933 in Amsterdam , the only child of Isidore and Florie Jacobson. In the first years of German occupation, her father was sent to a labor camp. Hans and her mother met Henny Krabbé, who was active in the Dutch underground, and the decision was made that Hans live with Henny and her daughter Karen. The three developed a strong family-like bond which lasted for many years. Hans later discovered that her father had been sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau and murdered during a death march. Hans’s mother was also captured and taken to Auschwitz, but she survived, returning to Amsterdam. She later remarried and moved to Uruguay. Hans married Aron in 1957 and the two have had four children. https://www.yadvashem.org/education/t...
