A Milwaukee area author will speak about her teenage years in Belgium during the chaos of World War II at the Belgian Heritage Center later this month. Irene Litz-Barre, will give her presentation about her book, “Following the Lines: World War II as Experienced by a Belgian girl”. She will recount her family’s ordeal after the German invasion in May of 1940. Barb Chisholm from the Belgian Heritage Center says the author will share a compelling story of a family struggling to reconnect and stay safe during the war.
Litz-Barre will speak at 10:30 and 11:30 on Saturday morning May 25 at the Belgian Heritage Center which is located in Namur on County Road DK. There is no charge for the event and Belgian pie and coffee will be served.
