David & Rik visit Kamp Westerbork & Appear on Dutch TV!

Today David Natale & Rik Deskin traveled two hours by car to a remote East corner of The Netherlands to visit Kamp Westerbork. They were driven by Xaviera Hollander and her husband Phillip.

They were met by Alan Erlich (the nephew of Max Erlich, the main character David plays in The Westerbork Serenade), Jack Weil (his parents met at Kamp Westerbork), his wife Astrid (a school principal), and documentary film-maker Erga Netz.

They went on a tour of the Museum now on the original site and walked the now memorialized grounds of Kamp Westerbork, filmed by Erga and documented with audio recorder by Rik (who has a lot of editing ahead of him on a feature-length special podcast about the day).

Afterward they all traveled to Drenthe for an appearance on RTV’s PS show. David was interviewed and then performed a bit of dialogue and the title song of The Westerbork Serenade.

A long, compelling and interesting day.
