#FamilyTree365 – Day 30 September 30, 2016

Marius Job Cohen, former mayor of Amsterdam, is my 8th cousin (and a cousin of some other varying degrees that I didn’t feel like working out) through my van Cleeff ancestors in the Netherlands.  Judging from his Wikipedia page he has had a very long and successful political career.

During WWII, though the family was not religious they were forced into hiding until the end of the war.  Afterwards his father worked at the Dutch Institute for War Documentation.
