If you are using primary sources, then it would appear your knowledge of
Dutch is insufficient for you to make a correct translation. It is
rather unfortunate that you see fit to teach Leo van de Pas both his
natural language and his country's history.
On the other hand, if you are using translated secondary sources, then
they seem to have made the mis-translation and you have fallen for it.
I find all this frightfully embarrassing on your behalf.
