Sunday 12th September 2021:
Not only will the van Tongeren Sisters sing at this Luncheon, they will also launch a book titled ‘INDO’.
Their father Willem van Tongeren wrote a book whilst being a POW.
Jacqueline Boell (van Tongeren), has retyped the 196,000 word manuscript and published it.
This amazing story gives an excellent insight into how life was in the Dutch East Indies prior to WWII, life as a POW and the overwhelming experience of being liberated.
The Abel Tasman Club is proud that Jacqueline has chosen to launch her book at our Club.
