Four letters are all that remains of Loek Kleerekoper, a young radio-technician who spent the last fifteen months of his life in Nazi concentration camps in occupied Holland and Poland. In this talk, Hilda van Neck-Yoder traces the fate of her distant cousin whose story has been virtually erased by the Shoah. Her painstaking research in archives in Amsterdam and Vught reveals the brutality and terror that Loek had to confront but was forbidden to describe in his few letters. The result is a story that avoids the oversimplification and clichés that often mar narratives of the Holocaust.
