have you ever been to Trieste..? It is near Venice on the Adriatic Sea. A very beautiful city. I was born there in 1931. I wish you would do a show about that area. Thank you. Mirella

Rick Steves - canal vacation

Program: Rick Steves' Europe
On Jan. 3 I tuned into Ch. 12.2 to see Haunted Texas, and just before that program were scenes of Rick Steves on a canal boat, Papillon. What is the canal, and in what country is it? I became interested in canal boats after reading Roseanna, by Maj Sjowall, which is set on the Gota Canal in Sweden.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  I believe you saw the filler Rick Steves’ Barging in Burgundy.   Here is the link to the filler on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xJEKI_Lj_E that may give you the information you are looking for.
Traveling by barge is definitely on my bucket list!  The book you read sounds intriguing – I will have to look into that.
Thanks again for sharing.
Have a super day!

Amsterdam/Dutch Sidetrips

I saw just part of Rick Steves' Europe "Amsterdam and Dutch Sidetrips" He was somewhere and showed a list of names...I think he said they were names of Dutch Jews killed by the Germans. My last name was there! Can you give me more information about where he was? Thanks!

RE:  Rick Steves’ Europe #206 “Amsterdam and Dutch Sidetrips”
Please visit Rick’s website where you can find the following excerpt:
Amsterdam's Dutch Theater, which was used as an assembly hall for local Jews destined for Nazi concentration camps, is a powerful memorial. On the wall, 6,700 family names represent the 104,000 Jews deported and killed by the Nazis. The nearby Jewish Historical Museum — four historic synagogues joined together by steel and glass to make one modern complex — tells the story and struggles of Judaism through the ages.
While Hitler controlled Europe, each country had a courageous, if small, resistance movement. All over Europe you'll find streets and squares named after the martyrs of the resistance. Any history buff or champion of the underdog will be inspired by the patriotism documented in Europe's Nazi-resistance museums — the most extensive is Amsterdam's Dutch Resistance Museum. You'll see propaganda movie clips, study a forged ID card under a magnifying glass, and read of ingenious, daring efforts to hide local Jews from the Germans. Oslo's Norwegian Resistance Museum (Norges Hjemmefrontmuseum) andCopenhagen'sMuseum of Danish Resistance (Frihedsmuseet) are also fascinating, as is the Museum of Deportation and the Resistance in Mechelen, Belgium.
