Johannes Heesters passed away Dec 25, 2011

Johannes Heesters, an entertainer born in Amersfoort, who felt unwell just a few weeks ago, died on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2012, aged 108.

I learned about that from EuroNews' broadcast, which even mentioned Amersfoort, and dubbed Heesters "Hitler's favourite singer". Whatever is true, R.I.P.
