For those of you who saw our Facebook post this week I thought I would give you the entire story. One of the best parts about working at Pak Mail Grandville is hearing stories like this.
A gentleman called and inquired about custom crating and international shipping for his antique artwork. When he arrived he had quite an amazing tale for the painting he was shipping.
His father in law, and wife as a child, grew up in the Netherlands. When WWII was beginning the Nazi party came to that town to take away all the Jewish residents. They instructed him to point out any that he knew. He refused to do this and was, because of this action, taken away to a concentration camp himself. He survived this ordeal, coming out weighing only 85 lbs. When the war was over and as a thank you from local townspeople a painting was commissioned and presented to him by a local artist. It was of a local park where, coincidentally, his daughter later played while growing up.
This painting stayed in the family all these years until now. It turns out that the artist, Jos Lussenburg, became quite famous and a museum showing many of his works, The Noord-Velus Museum, is now opening in Nunspeet, Holland. The family has decided that the best place for this painting is back where it all started, and they are donating it to this museum.
An amazing and great story, and just another day at Pak Mail! -Jim
