Description:
A story about the life of printer’s son Louis, from the age of twelve up to his eighteenth. His teenage years find Belgium implicated in the Second World War.
His father is vehemently in favour of anything Flemish – and therefore sympathizes with the Nazis and their ideal of a Greater German Reich. His relatives and the other villagers are of a different opinion.
Anyway, the war does not play a very prominent role in their lives. Everybody is taken up by their own business, or preoccupied with local or personal affairs.
Inevitably, however, the German occupation sharpens contrasts with dramatic results: imprisonment, collaboration, forced labour in Germany, headlong flights from Flanders.
