John Vandenberge was almost four years old when the Nazis overtook Holland.
How would you feel if your home town was suddenly invaded by foreign soldiers? How would you react to hearing bombs falling? How would parents provide for their family with very severe shortages of food and supplies?
From Tyranny To Freedom is the personal story of John Vandenberge and his family as they struggled to survive during the five long years of Nazi occupation of their beloved Rotterdam, Holland.
John and his family were stripped of their identity, threatened almost daily, and suffered from sickness and hunger because Hitler imposed his will on all the Dutch people.
John Vandenberge, DDS, DD, served in the Royal Dutch Air Force 1955-1957, worked for the Holland America Line, and then immigrated to America in 1958.
Today he is a proud American.
"I am very grateful to be an American now and I want you to know what it is like to experience and to be freed from tyranny. I love America but I am concerned about her future."
