Erik Ader... “abuse of Ader's memory”

The JNF memorial for Bastiaan Jan Ader, the Dutch righteous gentile who hid Jews from Nazis.


Ο γιός ενός ολλανδού που έκρυβε Εβραίους κι έσωζε την ζωή τους 
κατά την διάρκεια του 2ου Παγκόσμιου Πολέμου,ζητάει να αφαιρεθεί
το όνομα του πατέρα του από την τιμητική πλάκα,στην Κατεχόμενη 
Παλαιστίνη
Ο Erik Αντερ,πρώην πρεσβευτής της Ολανδιας στη Νορβηγία, αναφέρει 

ότι το μνημείο χτίστηκε πάνω σε αυτό που κάποτε ήταν ένα χωριό 
παλαιστινίων και αυτό είναι " κατάχρηση της μνήμης του Αντερ 
"επειδή το Ισραήλ διαπράτει μια Εθνοκάθαρση''

Erik Ader, whose father and mother, Bastiaan Jan and Johanna Ader, 
are believed by the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum to have helped at 
least 200 Jews during the Holocaust, made the plea in an interview 
published last week by the Dutch NOS public broadcaster. 
The article defined the monument as “abuse of Ader’s memory” 
because of Israel’s “ethnic cleansing.”
Erik Ader, a former ambassador of the Netherlands to Norway, said he 
“cannot ask his father,” who was executed by the Nazis in 1944, 
“what he thinks of how his name is connected to this injustice but it’s not 
difficult to guess, knowing what he stood for.”
Ader was referring to a Jewish National Fund monument honoring his 
father in a forest planted on the ruins of Bayt Nattif, a Palestinian village 
about 13 miles southwest of Jerusalem that was destroyed after it was 
captured by the Israel Defense Forces during Israel’s War 
of Independence.
According to the NOS article, Ader intends to donate trees for a forest 
that will be named after his father near a Palestinian village in 
the West Bank. He has traveled to the village to participate in the 
unveiling ceremony of a plaque honoring his father.
In a statement to NOS, the Jewish National Fund expressed its 
respect for the actions of Ader’s parents, adding that the monument 
was legally constructed on state-owned lands.
