A forgotten hero George Maduro was a household name in the Netherlands of the 1930s. He was the handsome, charismatic son of a well-to-do Jewish family from Curaçao and had garnered national fame as a university student when he tried to kidnap the mascot of the Royal Dutch Navy. The invasion of the Netherlands by Nazi Germany put an abrupt end to his carefree existence. On the first day of the invasion he led a courageous charge to recapture a strategic villa, which helped delay the German advance. News of his brave feats travelled far and wide; even the Gestapo knew who he was. George joined the Resistance, was arrested twice and miraculously released after a long imprisonment in the infamous ‘Oranjehotel’ prison. He was arrested by the Gestapo during an attempt to flee to England and died in Dachau Concentration Camp shortly before its liberation. He was 28 years old. George’s parents donated the starting capital for Madurodam, the miniature city in The Hague that supports children’s charities, in memory of their son. Kathleen Brandt-Carey was born and raised in New York and moved to the Netherlands in 1980. She holds degrees from St. Lawrence University and the University of Amsterdam and has written numerous textbooks for Dutch elementary and secondary-school pupils. Her aunt by marriage, Vivienne Maduro Seeley, is a first cousin of George Maduro’s and inspired her to write his biography. Brandt-Carey describes George Maduro’s short but intensive life in living colour: the lush life on Curaçao, his bittersweet love affair with a Protestant girl, Occupied Holland and the Resistance. The ‘Maduro’ behind ‘Madurodam’ is revealed as a complex, loveable and inspiring young man for whom ideals were more important than personal safety and who never lost courage, even under the most brutal circumstances.

Pierre Terrail, the renowned Bayard of history, was born at the Castle of Bayard, in Dauphine, about the year 1474, when Louis XI. was King of France. He was a French soldier, generally known as the Chevalier de Bayard. Throughout the centuries since his death, he has been known as "the knight without fear and beyond reproach." He preferred the name "The Good Knight." . In 1494, he accompanied Charles VIII's expedition into Italy to seize Naples and was knighted after the 1495 Battle of Fornovo, in which he captured a standard. Throughout his life he was known for his skill in battle. As a soldier, Bayard was considered the epitome of chivalry and one of the most skillful commanders of the age. He was noted for the exactitude and completeness of his information on the enemy's movements, which he obtained by careful reconnaissance and a well-arranged system of espionage.

Een vergeten held George Maduro was aan het eind van de jaren dertig een Bekende Nederlander. Hij was de jonge, knappe zoon van een gefortuneerde Joodse familie uit Curaçao en hij had in alle kranten gestaan met een studentikoze stunt om de eer van zijn familie te redden. De bezettingstijd maakte een einde aan zijn zorgeloze leven. Op de eerste oorlogsdag onderscheidde hij zich door leiding te geven aan de moedige herovering van Villa Dorrepaal, waardoor de Duitse opmars in Nederland was vertraagd. Dat wapenfeit kreeg grote bekendheid, waardoor ook de bezetter wist wie hij was. George werd actief in het verzet, werd twee maal gearresteerd en ook weer vrijgelaten na zware maanden in het Oranjehotel, maar uiteindelijk belandde hij door verraad in een Duitse gevangenis en daarna in Dachau, waar hij vlak voor de bevrijding aan vlektyfus overleed, achtentwintig jaar oud. Ter nagedachtenis aan hun enige zoon stelden zijn ouders het startkapitaal beschikbaar voor de bouw van Madurodam. Kathleen Brandt-Carey is geboren en getogen in New Hampshire, in de Verenigde Staten. Na haar huwelijk met een Nederlander in 1980 woont ze in de kop van Noord-Holland. Zij schreef vele boeken voor Nederlandse scholieren. Haar aangetrouwde tante Vivienne is een Maduro en een volle nicht van George. Zij inspireerde Kathleen tot het schrijven van deze biografie. Kathleen Brandt-Carey beschrijft George Maduro’s korte maar intensieve leven met veel gevoel voor sfeer en detail: het exotische bestaan in Curaçao, zijn bitterzoete grote liefde, bezet Nederland en het verzet. De 'Maduro' achter Madurodam blijkt een complexe, beminnelijke en inspirerende jongeman te zijn, voor wie idealen belangrijker waren dan veiligheid en die zelfs onder de meest barre omstandigheden de moed niet verloor.
