We so far have received 40 registrations for the reunion. (As of March 16, 2016, the number has risen to 120.) Many relatives from outside the Netherlands have signed up. Therefore we ask residents of Holland to put the date in their calendar and register via the email address below.
For catering and organizational reasons we would like to know ahead of time how many people we need to accommodate. Fairly soon we will provide a list with the names of the relatives who will definitely participate.

The Boissevain Foundation only charges a basic amount–10 (ten) euros per participant, which includes tea/coffee at 1 PM and drinks & bites after 3 pm on Saturday. Children up to 12 years old are free.
This is because we want as many relatives to be present for as many events as possible, even if they can come just for a short time.
