He started his own party in 2002, but during the election campaign he was shot and killed.
Kan (1911-1983) started the Dutch (and Flemish) tradition of the New Year's Eve conferences, in which a comedian reflects on the events of the year that passed.
Sonneveld (1917-1974) will always be remembered for his song "Aan de Amsterdamse Grachten".

Answer: Johan Cruyff

Cruyff (1947-2016) was a soccer player and coach. There are a number of people who consider Cruyff the best player of the Twentieth century, while others grant that title to the Brazilian Pele.
Cruyff started his career with Ajax Amsterdam (1964-1973), and during this period Ajax won the European Cup twice. In 1973 he was transferred to Barcelona, where he played until 1978. Later he played briefly for Los Angeles Aztecs, Washington Diplomats, Levante Union Deportiva, a second period at Ajax, and finally Feyenoord Rotterdam.
Cruyff also led the national team to second place on the FIFA World Cup in 1974 (lost against West Germany after victories against Argentina and Brazil).
Bernard Haitink (born 1929) started conducting the Nederlandse Radio Orkest (Dutch Radio Orchestra) in 1954. He also conducted the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, among others.
André Rieu (born 1949) created his own orchestra, the Johann Strauss Orchestra, in 1987. This orchestra is well known for light classical music and the visual flair at the shows. If you would like to buy a CD or a DVD by this orchestra, you better go for the DVD, for there is always much going on.

10. Which of the following Dutch women did *NOT* work as a fashion model?

Answer: Annie M.G. Schmidt

Annie M.G. Schmidt (1911-1995) was an author, especially of children's literature. Her best known titles were the series about Jip and Janneke, a boy and the girl from next door. Between 1952 and 1957, Schmidt published an adventure of these youngsters every week. Another famous book is "Pluk van de Petteflet", starring a young redhead boy living in the top apartment of a skyscraper. My favourite story however is "Minoes", about a cat who turned into a young woman and worked for a newspaper.
Doutzen Kroes (born 1985) started modelling in 2003. She worked for Victoria's Secret during seven years.
Karen Mulder (born 1970) showed fashion by Versace, Dior and Chanel, among other brands.
