The text follows the original, from her journal;
it has been translated by Ella's grandson Marius (webmaster).
All photographs and other images, such as the postcards at
this page, are from the journal. Not all of the photographs
from the journal could be placed here. The quality, after
80 years, was not always as good as we would have wanted!
Sometimes it was better to leave a Dutch word
in the text: in case not evident, it is indicated by italic
text. In other cases a word needed explication. Translations
and explications can be found at the bottom of that page.
