    Guided Tour of Fort Breendonk


    Join us on Sunday, October 29 for a very special guided visit to Fort Breendonk.

    Fort Breendonk was built in the early 1900s to protect Antwerp from possible German invasion. Damaged at the start of World War I, it fell into disrepair... until the Nazis took it over after their invasion of Belgium in 1940. Never designated an official concentration camp by the SS and instead labeled a "reception" camp where prisoners were held until they were either released or transported, Breendonk was no less brutal. About 3,600 prisoners were held there – just over half of them survived. As one prisoner put it, "I would prefer to spend nineteen months at Buchenwald than nineteen days at Breendonk."


    Our guide will be the American historian James M. Deem, author of The Prisoners of Breendonk, a compelling account of those who lived and died there. With access to the camp and its archives and with rare photos and artwork, Mr. Deem pieces together the story of the camp by telling the stories of its victims –Jews, communists, resistance fighters, and common criminals– for the first time in an English-language publication. Leon Nolis's haunting photography of the camp today accompanies the wide range of archival images.

    The story of Breendonk is one you will never forget.

    Please note that this event is limited to 25 participants.

    The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd


    In this book, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world. The novel begins on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten year-old Handful, who is to be her handmaid. We follow their remarkable journeys over the next thirty five years, as both strive for a life of their own, dramatically shaping each other’s destinies and forming a complex relationship marked by guilt, defiance, estrangement and the uneasy ways of love.

    About Sue Monk Kidd
    Kidd’s other best-sellers include The Secret Life of Bees (2002) and The Mermaid Chair (2005).  She has co-written a bestselling memoir with her daughter, Ann Kidd Taylor, titled Traveling with Pomegranates: A Mother-Daughter Story (2009), as well as authoring several acclaimed memoirs, including The Dance of the Dissident Daughter (1996). Kidd lives in southwest Florida with her husband, Sandy and their black Labrador retriever.
