Old Fortress Corfu Prison | 20221012


The Old Fortress of Corfu , Greece – here filmed 29 September 2022 – was used at the end of World War II by the Nazis to imprison the Jews of Corfu prior to their deportation from the island (Ref 1). Greek resistance fighter Manolis Glézos (Sep 1922 – Mar 2020) – who tore down the swastika from the Acropolis in May 1941 – was confined in a cellar there (Ref 2, 3). Last month, 28 September 2022, holocaust survivor Mr Simon Gronowski – escapee from the 20th prisoners’ train convoy to Auschwitz (Ref 4) – spoke in the European Parliament at the Centennial celebration of the birth of Manolis Glézos, on the resistance against fascism, nazism, imperialism and the daily fight for democracy (Ref 5, 6, 7) . Mr Simon Gronowski (born 12 oktober 1931 in Brussels) is celebrating today his 91th birthday … congrats … La vie est belle !

We don’t talk about Anny | Simone Korkus | 20220722

Degrelle’s maid

Cover image of the Hebrew edition על אנני לא מדברים – We don’t talk about Anny – by author Simone Korkus, published by Carmel , in a translation by Irish Bauman of the original Dutch book Het dienstmeisje van Degrelle (2017) .

Jul 22, 2022 , Israel. Book presentation this morning at Simone Korkus’ home, of the Hebrew edition על אנני לא מדברים – We don’t talk about Anny. Special event in honor of Hannah and Max Nadel, Henri and Madeleine Cornet, Elias and Hava Gnazik. Picture by Embassy of Belgium in Israel | Twitter

Anny

Anny (or Annie) is the war name – nom de guerre – of the Jewish Hannah Nadel who , during the Second World War, ends up as a maid in the Brussels house of the sister of Léon Degrelle — Belgium’s foremost Nazi collaborator — and in this way escapes the horrors of the persecution of the Jews. Simone Korkus brings this unlikely story to life, meets Hannah’s Belgian rescuers and shows how life in wartime contains many gray zones. While Simone Korkus reconstructs Hannah’s life in Brussels, she encounters family secrets and also runs into her own prejudices. For what is truth in the way we look at others and judge their behavior? And how does our memory distort traumas such as those after World War II?

Degrelle’s maid , has been published also in 2020 in a French edition La Servante de Degrelle.
