Year: 1998-01-01
A marathon game of dominoes, lasting from early morning to dusk, and involving four men for whom the game is a trigger for social, political and sexual rivalries against a background of colonial unrest. A complacent bailiff and his feckless taxi-driver partner are deserted by their wives for a mixture of personal and idealistic reasons, and the resulting turmoil leads on to murder and suicide as the tensions work themselves out. As well as being a novel of character, Double Play offers a powerful picture of colonial and attitudes in the mid-twentieth century.

A forgotten hero George Maduro was a household name in the Netherlands of the 1930s. He was the handsome, charismatic son of a well-to-do Jewish family from Curaçao and had garnered national fame as a university student when he tried to kidnap the mascot of the Royal Dutch Navy. The invasion of the Netherlands by Nazi Germany put an abrupt end to his carefree existence. On the first day of the invasion he led a courageous charge to recapture a strategic villa, which helped delay the German advance. News of his brave feats travelled far and wide; even the Gestapo knew who he was. George joined the Resistance, was arrested twice and miraculously released after a long imprisonment in the infamous ‘Oranjehotel’ prison. He was arrested by the Gestapo during an attempt to flee to England and died in Dachau Concentration Camp shortly before its liberation. He was 28 years old. George’s parents donated the starting capital for Madurodam, the miniature city in The Hague that supports children’s charities, in memory of their son. Kathleen Brandt-Carey was born and raised in New York and moved to the Netherlands in 1980. She holds degrees from St. Lawrence University and the University of Amsterdam and has written numerous textbooks for Dutch elementary and secondary-school pupils. Her aunt by marriage, Vivienne Maduro Seeley, is a first cousin of George Maduro’s and inspired her to write his biography. Brandt-Carey describes George Maduro’s short but intensive life in living colour: the lush life on Curaçao, his bittersweet love affair with a Protestant girl, Occupied Holland and the Resistance. The ‘Maduro’ behind ‘Madurodam’ is revealed as a complex, loveable and inspiring young man for whom ideals were more important than personal safety and who never lost courage, even under the most brutal circumstances.

A Key to Dutch History

A Key to Dutch History

Author: Commissie Ontwikkeling Nederlandse Canon
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press
ISBN: 9053564985
Pages: 228
Year: 2007
Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Tea Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history and culture should be passed on to future generations? A Key to Dutch History and its resulting overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has succeeded for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced.
