Back last Fall when we took the Etty Hillesum walking tour of Deventer, The Netherlands, we were told of a Jewish baker family that tried to hide from the Nazis during WWII by moving the family to the attic of a house across the street. They did not keep a good eye on their children and a small daughter was seen peeking out of a window. I can imagine that some Dutch neighbor became richer (5 guilders per person?) by reporting the family to the Nazis and seeing them transported to a concentration camp. Sad, but probably true!
Well, we passed the bakery shop (now a coffee/tea shop)/hotel while out walking yesterday and stopped in for coffee and tea and delicious krentewegge (richly filled raisin bread).

We had been told there was a museum on the location, and this is what we saw:
Hundreds of coffee mills
And more coffee mills.
There was a candy shop with little paper "punt"(point) bags and jars and bags full of candy.
Shelves of tins of all shapes and sizes.
