Freeland League by Alexander Heldring, former Ambassador of the Netherlands. As such he was stationed in Warsaw where at that time the Dutch embassy was representing Israel. Alexander got interested in the Jewish history with regard to the establishment of their own state. He even did his PhD on this subject. The Freeland League tried to establish a Jewish state in Surinam, and got quite far. History would have been different, and so would have Surinam.

You can find the information on his website www.heldring.com

Many thanks to Marijke for the introduction.
