COR SUIJK founder of the European Contemporary History Tours was the CEO Emeritus of the Anne Frank House was President of the no longer continued Contemporary Holocaust Education Foundation in New York, a teachers' in-service training institute. He died June 4 2014.

He is renowned for his efforts to bring the Anne Frank In The World exhibit to over 100 cities in the United States and also to many other places throughout the world. A Dutch Christian, who helped Jews during World War II, he is a survivor of imprisonment by the Germans. In 1965 he was hired by Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank and as a result of their close 15-year long friendship, Cor was given, for safe keeping, the five pages of Anne Frank's diary, recently being published for the first time.

For over 35 years Cor has traveled and worked extensively throughout the United States, the Far East and Europe. A fluent speaker in several languages, he is intimately familiar with the countries on this trip and their history. Cor will be with the group throughout Europe.
