Tonny Eyk Tonny Eyk via LinkedIN: Fred Vogels is als uitvoerend musicus, maar ook als componist een voortreffelijk vakman.

Wie zijn website. www.fredvogels.nl bezoekt en zijn composities kan beluisteren krijgt de bevestiging. Hij heeft prachtige muziek gecomponeerd en zijn basis t.w.het Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den-Haag heeft hem gevormd tot een compleet musicus.

Hij is muzikaal voor geen gat te vangen (ik weet het, want ik heb daar dezelfde opleiding gehad). Fred is een rasmuzikant...en ik moet eerlijk toegeven: ik ben zelfs een beetje jaloers op hem, want hij weet ook nog alles van ict, management en noem maar op.

Guest Toen ik naar mijn werkkamer ging dacht ik: het eerste wat ik ga doen is Fred eindelijk laten weten dat ik zeer geboeid ben door zijn Killing Fields. En daar was je mail. Ik ben het stuk nog een keer gaan beluisteren, en werd er opnieuw door geraakt.

De sfeer van verlatenheid die het begin oproept is, zo lijkt me, een uitdrukking van de stemming waarin je door 'het schuldige landschap' - tegelijk zo vredig als je het nu ziet en zo vol herinnering aan de vreselijke strijd die zich er heeft afgespeeld - bevangen raakt.

De hobomelodie boven die zacht verglijdende strijkerslijnen geeft het mooi weer. De harmonische wrijvingen in het middendeel zijn eveneens bijzonder effectief. En dan het Da capo. Ik vind het een gaaf stuk.

Clayton Ferguson To whom it may concern, My name is Clayton Ferguson, a 25 year old grandson of a Normandy Invasion veteran by the name of Curt Ferguson.
My grandfather is still alive today and I visit with him regularly. He served in the 49th Engineer Combat Battalion of the 1106th Engineer Combat Group, landing on Utah Beach the morning of D-Day. I have searched the web over for any information, pics, stories, bio's just whatever I can find on the 49th E.C.B. and have not been able to find much of anything.

I was just needing suggestions on what direction to turn my attention towards in finding the information I need to find. Beyond this request, his war's story is most excellent having had his brother jump in the night before with the 501st P.I.R. of the 101st airborne, both of them taking the war all the way to Germany and both of them coming home alive. I wonder how difficult it may be to record/submit his stories, photos, so that they are not forgotten in history.

If you can be of any help at all, please, reply and tell me all about it. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Clayton Ferguson

Guest To my liberators
One day, as a child, I lost my name I was only a shadow, a number Drowned into a bottomless pit
Out of which it seems that no One could ever emerge For month and month I struggled
Calling you for help, so often, liberty
With all my strength in this battle thrown At last I have seen the miracle come true
Thank you, all of you who didn?t know
For whom exactly you were fighting for It was to give back a name and life
To a little girl whose name was Marie. MARIE LIPSTADT-PINHAS ? (Brussels ? Belgium) Liberated from concentration camp Turkheim (Dachau) on 27th april 1945, by 7th US ARMY, 10th armored division Mrs. Marie LIPSTADT-PINHAS

Guest Super job you did on the bio record of my father. Thanks for all of this.

I feel the work you do here is so very important,as it is a part of history,and we hope we never have to revisit it, but at the same time we must pay homage to those who fought and died, and those who survived such perils.

Let us never forget.........thanks again
