  1. In de zomer van 1966 heb ik deelgenomen aan een oecumenisch werkkamp o.l.v. ingenieur Koksma. Ik bewaar schitterende herinneringen aan ons werk en de contacten op het eiland! Ik lees net over de tentoonstelling van juli 2014 over het tienjarige project van Koksma, op het eiland! Wat zou ik dit graag gezien hebben!
