The Durlacher’s were a very artistique family who spoke German in a special way. The family had fled from Germany and had moved to a beautiful villa in the fashionable Jachtlaandistrict in Apeldoorn. In spite of their prosperity they had financial problems. Arthur Durlacher tried to make both ends meet by selling liquid soap to private persons. He distributed the soap over the buckets which he then sold.
