    That Hollywood Reporter piece is actually three stories combined into one. Which tells you that none of the stores in and of themselves are all that important.

    Yes, it is interesting that this piece doesn’t mention the fact that Willem Arondeus was gay; indeed, before he was executed by the Nazis, he instructed his lawyer to reveal to the public that he was gay, with the statement: “Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards.”
