Son of the same name??[edit]

Did Allard Pierson have a son who shared his name? On the Sonderfahndungsliste G.B., a list of people whom the Nazis wanted to arrest in case of a successfull invasion of the British islands, which is available on the website of the Imperial War Museum in London ( there is an entry on a banker named Allard Pierson from Amsterdam, whom the Gestapo assumed to have fled to London after the German occupation of the Netherlands in 1940 and whom it intended to track down in case of a successfull invasion of the British islands. Since the Allard Pierson whom this article focusses on died in 1896 he can obviously not have been the same man, who was wanted in 1940...however, due to the fact that all the other data on the two men is identical (same name and same geographical area of acitiviy) I assume that the banker whom the Nazis were searching for in 1940 may be the son of this man. Does anyone have any data on who the Allard Pierson who was active in 1940 might have been?Zsasz (talk) 21:07, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
