    I loved living in Amsterdam. It was really wonderful. As a child I have to explain about my parents. My dad and I were born in Amsterdam and my mom and brother were born in Philadelphia. So my dad was a billiard player and he was a world amateur champion. When he went to the United States my mother also played and she refereed a game he played and that’s how they met. They were married, they had my brother, they came back to the Netherlands and that’s where I was born. After about 5 years we came to the United States for the summer, then went back for two years to the Netherlands, then my mother became homesick again, so back to the United States and we lived there for 2 years then we came back to Holland after that and our family had planned to stay there for the rest of their lives but different things happened so we came to the united states in February 1940 before the Netherlands was invaded.
