XSt. Nicholas, "Kersti" and "Black Peter" (Superseded)

Kersti and St. Nicholas (1940)
This St. Nicholas was a central figure in my mother Hilda van Stockum's childhood and she made it part of ours. St Nicholas appears in several places in HvS's books and letters, and has a whole book devoted to him (Kersti and St. Nicholas). Her view of St. Nicholas may contribute something to the "Black Peter" controversy.

This post has been superseded by another posted a year later. This post is kept alive so that links are not broken.
