Going back 60 years in time with the Roosevelts

Two recordings of Radio Netherlands Wereldomroep were made
of Elenaor Roosevelt and Ms. Jekel who invited her to the Roosevelthouse on June 20, 1950.
(the daughter of Ms.Jekel then 13 years, has given me many leads to the story of the Rosevelthouse)

There are still many people in Nederland with the name Rosevelt.

As in 2000(see special page) on Friday 13th June 2003 a group of 30 descendants of FDR visited Zeeland and Oud-Vossemeer, which just had its annual fair (kermis).
They visited the Roosevelt Study Centre in Middelburg and the Dutch Reformed Church in Oud-Vossemeer.(and the fair)

A BIG MISTAKE in UN, not found in FOUR FREEDOMS , UN "security" Council has 5 permanent members with VETORIGHTS !

USA,Russia, China, UK and France don't bring the world to PEACE but to PIECES

All debates in UNSC are just hypocrism,
everyone knows either USA or Russia(invasion in Ukraine- migration weapon of Syrian refugees for Europe) or China will block any actions!
USA, Russia and China also don't recognize the International Crimininal Court.
The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes

So remove the vetorights of USA,Russia,China, UK, France, and wars, refugees, poverty will be gone,
all members UN should rule the world, not just those 5 warmongers for $profit or gains.
In fact since 1900, Sykes-Picot, and treaty of Sevres.
