Selected Testimonials on Specific Articles

“Very very fitting homage to one of the nicest, most well read, smartest and yet most down to earth, greatest men I had the pleasure of knowing. A veritable fountain of cultural and social information on Curacao, who will forever remind us of what is truly important in life…”  – Willy Maal (on #696.

“AWESOME!! I have lived here for 3 years now and I can’t count the number of times I have passed, and admired, this mural – not knowing its meaning! Now, as I prepare my students at the International School for Siman di Kultura, I smile knowing how enriched my 5th graders will be thanks to this story and painting!” – Ryan Kummins (on #969. The Tale of Compa Nanzi and the Spotted Cow (Kompa Nanzi i e Baka Pintá)

“I loved reading the phrase ‘Those sand covered floors leave you with a sense of all the silent history contained within its walls.’ The descriptions of why the sand came to be there in the first place also moved me and made me feel so connected to my ancestors. From the practical (drying muddy shoes) to the symbolic (Sinai desert) to the Biblical (God’s promise to Abraham), these interpretations are indeed replete with silent history.” – Gerard Edery (on #677. Curaçao’s Sephardic Synagogue’s Sand Floor)
