Hela Vanderlinden, aunt of Wacek Kornblum’s wife, with her husband

This is a photo of  my wife’s aunt Hela Vanderlinden with her husband Gerard Vanderlinden. This photo was taken in Amsterdam. I don’t know anything else about aunt Hela.  

My wife, Jasia [Janina], maiden name Aneksztejn, was born in Warsaw in 1923. She was the only child in an assimilated family, her father worked in the American Embassy and was far from Judaism, like her mother, Helena Aneksztejn, nee Finkelblech. She went to a Polish gymnasium on Miodowa Street, but had Jewish friends. She had aunts, one in Holland, and another one, who survived the war in Russia, then went to London with her husband, we used to go there. We got married in 1950.
