"Simone is Jewish and named after her uncle Simon Bacharach. Simon was a well-known and popular flower vendor in Amsterdam with a great sense of justice. Even before the war he reprimanded the famous Dries Riphagen. He found his criminal activities more than reprehensible.

And that cost Simon his life. The trap is set when 'Ansje Wortelboer' with a Jewish star on her coat asks Uncle Simon for help. Simon is lured by her to a jeweler and there Riphagen storms in. That's a dirty Jew, I tricked to you nicely', says Riphagen. Simon is arrested, deported to Camp Westerbork and finally gassed in Auschwitz. His mother Sarah Bacharach, Simone's grandmother, survived the war. She will sell flowers on the Rembrandtplein for many years to come".
