Author documents how Belgian nuns saved Jewish children

Catholic World News - August 20, 2010

An upcoming lecture on Long Island draws attention to the scholarship of Suzanne Vromen, who has documented how Belgian nuns saved Jewish children from the Holocaust. “In the terrifying summer of 1942 in Belgium, when the Nazis began the brutal roundup of Jewish families, parents searched desperately for safe haven for their children,” notes Oxford University Press in a blurb for Vromen’s Hidden Children of the Holocaust. “These children found sanctuary with other families and schools-- but especially in Roman Catholic convents and orphanages.”
