Tony


Today I learned about Tony Edelstein, when I started reading again in the autobiography ‘Cello met één snaar’ (Cello with one string) of the well known dutch comedian , stage artist, Abraham Bueno de Mesquita – whose comic talents saved his life. Bueno’s ability to even play a one string cello combined with his mimical talents saved him from deportation from the Dossin Barracks (Kazerne Dossin) in Mechelen, Belgium , when the camp commander was looking for musicians. He remained imprisoned for 2 years , working in Kazerne Dossin. His wife Tony , however , was deported right away but escaped from that 20th death train (Transport XX) to Auschwitz – together with her twin sister Adela – near St. Truiden , where she survived the war working for a local general practitioner. Later today , after more research , I recognized Tony (3rd row last portrait on the right) and Adela (2nd row from top , 2nd portrait counting from right to left) on the billboards with passport photos (from the State Archives, Brussels) of the people that escaped from Transport XX – filmed last month following the commemoration of the attack on Transport XX in Boortmeerbeek , Belgium. ① memo 20180516 ~ Tony
