I am sorry to inform you of the death of Maurice (Ries) Vanderpol on October 19 at the age of 92. Dr. Vanderpol was an admired psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and an important voice over the decades for those who demonstrated courage and compassion during the Holocaust.

Dr. Vanderpol was born in Amsterdam. In 1942, during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, he went into hiding, together with his brother and mother, until 1945.

My choices this week are:
