Event Details

Book reading with Suzanne Vromen. In the terrifying summer of 1942 in Belgium, when the Nazis began the brutal roundup of Jewish families, parents searched desperately for a safe haven for their children. Convents offered the greatest safety as Belgium was a Catholic country; the Church remained virtually untouched. The instructions to accept Jewish children did not come from the Catholic hierarchy, but from the nuns, and each convent acted independently.

In Hidden Children of the Holocaust, Suzanne Vromen presents research based on her interviews with men and women who were hidden as children, the women of the Resistance, and the Mothers Superior and nuns who sheltered the more than 1,200 children.
