  • "A little idea to write about the family during World War II became bigger and bigger culminating in a book called 'So We Don't Forget' which was in two volumes... There were 50 copies made through the Lifescapes program of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute under Extended Studies at University of Nevada in Reno... It had as much information about the family as I could find and a timeline of historical and family events. This brief version was suggested by Robert Krell,'Now that you have done all the background work how about writing a book.' So this is for the general public and concentrates on two family's lives during World War II—the Oversloots and the Krells." —Julia Oversloot, Title page verso
