79 Comment by Mr Eli Schaap (New York), pers. comm. Nov. 2021): “My grandfather owned a milk and cheese store; not a butcher shop. He was very well connected in the Orthodox Jewish community, and he probably was indeed able to get kosher meat for the orphanage during WWII. Also, most of my grandmother’s family (Naatje Keizer) were kosher butchers in Zwolle and Utrecht which may also have provided a connection for securing kosher meat.”

254 Comment by Mr Eli Schaap (New York): “The Hachsjara Agudah places in the Netherlands were probably part of Poalei Agudah and were indeed anti-Zionist. However, the Mizrachi movement consisted of Orthodox Jews who were in general fully supportive of Zionism. … I believe Nathan Italie was most likely a member of the Mizrahi movement. His wife Sara certainly was.”
