We can still see the ruins of houses in the old Jewish section of Amsterdam. We were told that these houses were used for kindling wood in the cold winter months during the German occupation when no coal was available. The homes were never repaired because the former owners never returned from the concentration camps.
On the outskirts of the city are several American colonies where American soldiers and their families live. They have their own stores, places of amusement etc. We spent two days in Frankfurt and we are on our way to Athens, Greece, where we will stay for a day and continue with the Olympic line to Cypress and to Israel.
