  1. …Awesome website

    [...]I am not positive the place you’re getting your information, but great topic.[...]

  2. We are looking for a photograph of Frank Sekulich, who died on april 4th, 1945 in Almen, The Netherlands.
    He is buried at the Canadian War Cemetry in Holten, The Netherlands.

    Hope to hear from you,

  3. HI there
    I looked at the online book regarding the local history of Kenaston, Saskatchewan, and found reference to the Sekulich, though no photo. I will keep looking. I have an idea of another book to try to look in to see if there is any success next I am at the library. At the following link, the book is searchable online, and you can type in Sekulich and see what comes up.

  4. Hi there
    It has been a pleasure talking with you Noudi Spönhoff via email and I am very glad that Frank Sekulich’s niece, Bev George, was able to find a photograph of Frank Sekulich for the Netherlands magazine! What a tribute expressed in the magazine article which you wrote to the war effort, the Canadian troops who served, and Frank Sekulich who gave the supreme sacrifice. Thank you so much for your email, indeed, and it will be wonderful to follow up further with you, update the SVWM, meet other contacts here, and also be introduced to the historian Jan Braakman and his books Verhalen van het Slagveld, The War in the Corner, and website wp.me/p7w2ZL-1Y
    Thank you again
    Kind Regards
