Day 166 - Found my dad's last words May 26, 2014 - Here they are...Flemish survivor of Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Life ......

Very poignant for me!

Very likely his very last written words as he mentioned earlier in his draft that my daughter had just been born and he died 10 days after her birth. He survived Buchenwald and Auschwitz and I believe this had a big impact on his final outlook ....... and memoirs

August 1989

Page 229 - In his own words - no editing from me!

So here we go to another chapter in the table of imagination and fiction for the sake of preservation of the survivor.

A tribute to all my friends, far relatives and unknown people that will have to endure the ordeal of staying behind as there is no other land they want to be refugees in.....

So I returned back to Africa,  No dictators or tyrants could hold me.....

The Good Lord could release the imprisoned spirits better than I could without my help but what was the use if the wealth and knowledge was not spread by a poor medium like me.

Therefore I think it is up me to do it.  With the strength imbued in me I set out on this last voyage of ultimate success.

He left the door open......

The Belgian flag and Buchenwald

Just found this by accident 

Memorial trip to Buchenwald

Date: February 29, 2012
The Institute of National Institute Veterans War Invalids, Veterans and War Victims (IV-INIG) is organizing a memorial trip to accompany the return to concentration camp Buchenwald a Belgian flag secretly crafted by political prisoners during their detention. 175 young students Ciney will participate from 1 to 4 March 2012.
This trip will allow students to discover the reality of the concentration camp Buchenwald and Dora Kommando (a subcamp of Buchenwald).
Visit Buchenwald will be punctuated by the rising national colors back to Buchenwald 67 years after release. This flag was crafted by Henri Glineur illegally deported for acts of resistance, with bits of stolen fabrics. He and his acolytes could be executed if the flag had been found in their possession. Yet it is this flag Henri Glineur raised to accommodate the U.S. Army liberated the camp. This flag is then passed carefully from hand to hand to celebrate democracy today back to Buchenwald.

I am Louis' daughter and have my own blog called Buchenwald's Belgian Daughter at
