Departing Rotterdam

Crossing the English Channel

"Homesick and seasick."

"[Ruth and Hilde] eventually got to the hook of Holland, in Rotterdam, and they boarded a ship that took them across the English Channel and on to Dovercourt, England, and that was a summer camp with cabins, but they weren’t heated. And the crossing itself was quite terrorizing because the seas were so rough, and she said the sailors were getting sick! And then they were homesick and seasick, but they were just sick."
