Skip to comments.Dutch Lady Recalls Travel in Cabin Neighboring the Oswalds Aboard S.S. Maasdam in June 1962

As written by me earlier this month, I came in contact with a lady who travelled from Rotterdam to Hoboken, New Jersey on the ship Maasdam IV, thirteen days in june 1962. Just like the Oswalds did.
remarkable: never before was a passenger of the 1962-trip tracked down by anyone. remarkable: she was staying in cabin 471, the Oswalds slept in 473: they were neighbours. remarkable: she saw Oswald a lot, didn't talk to him. She never saw Marina and June.
She sent me two pictures: first time we see pictures of the ship during those days in june 1962.

Because I am so skeptical of so many JFK assassination theories, I still love checking out each one. O'Reilly may be full of himself, but he writes a damn good book here.
Cross checking his facts produced this interesting exchange and a couple of photos on the ship on which Lee Harvey Oswald returned to America with his Russian wife and daughter.
Why does the author point to all those very plausible things and non-events as being “remarkable”? Someone who just happened to be in a room close to the Oswald’s and didn’t particularly attempt to communicate with them is “remarkable”? Oswald was described as somewhat anti-social and as a loner, so why is it remarkable that he didn’t interact very much with fellow passengers? And even if he had, so what?
Read Ion Pacepa’s books- best re assassination
The guy’s website is full of interesting grist for the conspiracy mill if you read just a little Dutch. Between my meager knowledge of German (linguistically very similar to Dutch) and cut and paste into a site such as freetranslation.com, you have some fascinating stuff here.
Oh wait, that was fiction?
The Zapruder film was tampered with; that is
a simple fact which demonstrates that the government
wanted to give the public a different version of events
than what actually happened.
One can go on from there...
(Mrs. Kennedy also believed that others were involved,
including one well-known political figure. And she
was in a position to know more than most.)
The Commie did it, end of story.
Let me comment on the word Remarkable I used three times back in 2010.
remarkable: never before was a passenger of the 1962-trip tracked down by anyone.
THIS IS REMARKABLE. Every passanger aboard the bus to Mexico was tracked down after the assassination, but never ever any passenger from the SS Maasdam came forward, let alone give a affavidit.
remarkable: she was staying in cabin 471, the Oswalds slept in 473: they were neighbours.
LET ME REPHRASE THIS: not remarkable, but noteworthy/ extremely coincidental
remarkable: she saw Oswald a lot, didnt talk to him. She never saw Marina and June.
REMARKABLE IN THIS WAY: there are people on the internet that suggest Oswald did not take this ship. Here is some one who finally says, out of first hand: I saw him, he WAS on that ship.
They don’t anymore.
I was blogging on the assassination in Dutch several years ago; today I write in English on http://threeshotswerefired.com/.
All Dutch items will eventually be translated ordently on this new website.
I don’t see Lee Harvey anywhere?
You are all wrong, Bush did it...

I’m sorry to dissapoint you, but I never wrote he was in the pictures... Only reason why I uploaded them in 2010 and again today, is because they give a good impression of the atmosphere on board...
Thanks so much for coming forward so quickly! I’m looking forward to reading more on your English blog. High school German is only of marginal use for reading Dutch.
I wasn’t blaming you. I was blaming my reading comprehension deficit.
You didn't like the fiction version co-written by that other King, Leslie King, Jr.?
Wrote a big part on the SS Maasdam IV,
I’ll dig up more in the future, have to look in my personal archives, I know there is more to tell. I’ll also write more in the future on the trip Minsk-Rotterdam, interesting days in june 1962.
