Koksma letter to miss Sack from the Dutch Embassy in Athens


Explanation of the content of the above letter. The date must be July 1964!!!

Mr. Koksma asked for help at the Dutch Embassy in Athens. When the first group of summer campers left by boat Gerard Helmink was helping at the port. He was not leaving Kythira. He continued his work, but on an other location. For that reason he had packed his suitcase and someone brought it aboard. When the boat had left he was missing his suitcase. For that reason Mr. Koksma thought it would be a great help to send a letter to the Dutch Embassy in Athens. In the end Gerard himself traveled to Pireas and found his suite case back, on the ferry boat with all his personal belongings intact.
