    Remembering those on Flight MH17

    Far relative of King Willem amongst victims

     
    I'm not a direct relative of King Willem, nor of one of the victims aboard MH17. I found this info doing internet research. One of the victims is Quinn Lucas Schansman, 19 yrs old, born in New York, having both USA and Dutch nationality. He is related to Gerhart Hauptmann, Nobel prize winner in Literature, and also related to King Willem of the Netherlands.
    I'm not even sure the Dutch government or King Willem himself knows about this.
