Title: Westerweel woud

Who can help,

During WWII my grandfather Albertus Haverkort who lived in the town
Sassenheim in Holland was killed in the concentrationcamp Vugt in
Holland. After the war my father recieved a letter that there was a
tree planted for his father (my grandfather) for everything he had
done for the Jewes people. This tree was planted by  'Abraham Fdrber'
(or in his name) in a forest called 'Westerweel Woud' and it is
somewhere in Israel.

My father likes to get in contact with this man or his family. It is
possible that they moved to the USA.

The questions are :

- where in Israel is this forrest, and is it somekind of a memorial
that we can visit ?

- does somebody know this man (or his family) so we can contact

- is there anybody who has met my grandfather during the war.

Thanks and best regards,

			Bert Haverkort
