I am a Dutch man living in Ireland.

Originally from a small former mining town called Geleen in the province of Limburg in the Netherlands.







I moved to Limerick in Ireland in November 1997 and have lived here ever since.








I am passionate about music ,movies and history.


History of Sorts is a site with historical articles and blogs. The majority concern the WWII era but there are also blogs on music, movies and even serial killers. So overall quite a good mix of stories.

Although a good deal of it will be my own input. I do use other sources to compile stories in order to have the broadest overview.

I have also written 2 books and I am in the process writing my 2nd novel, which is fictional but ties in with WWII and the Holocaust.

  1. I shared your blog about 9/11 having just finished watching the documentary by the French filmmakers. I didn’t remember the name of the priest or the whole story but your capture of these details serves as an excellent reminder. I hope you are ok with my sharing your blog tomorrow. If not, I will not share.
