James Vanderpol chronicles his life experiences from his happy childhood growing up in a middle-class family in The Netherlands to the day the Nazi occupation began in Amsterdam – ultimately propelling 15-year-old Vanderpol into a world of terror and brutality that would last five years. Vanderpol and his brother survived the war and emigrated to the United States in 1946 where he would later enjoy a rewarding career as an accountant. Vanderpol will speak of his experiences and autograph copies of his book, "And the Money Went Over the Railing," at this free public lecture.
