Footnote

(1) Edmond Hertzberger was a wealthy Dutch industrialist (ready-made clothing) and collector. A Jew, he fled the Netherlands after his factory was seized by the Nazis in 1940. Eventually making his way to England, he joined the Dutch army in exile. He returned to the Netherlands after the war and rebuilt his factory. He lived in New Yorkand the Netherlands, retiring to Switzerland, where he died in 1993. A race car driver before his marriage, he was the only Dutchman to win a Grand Prix race. I am grateful to Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann and Dr. Don Hertzberger for their help in identifying Edmond Hertzberger.
