World War II in Antwerp, Belgium.: Experiences of a Young Boy. William LeMaire War is, of course, terrible Any war All the suffering, all the death, all the wounded, the destruction, homelessness, cruelty, hunger, fear, and panic It may also bring out the best in some people heroism, patriotism, compassion, and altruism But one would never think that war might be seen as an adventure in some ways for me it was.In this short book I write about mWar is, of course, terrible Any war All the suffering, all the death, all the wounded, the destruction, homelessness, cruelty, hunger, fear, and panic It may also bring out the best in some people heroism, patriotism, compassion, and altruism But one would never think that war might be seen as an adventure in some ways for me it was.In this short book I write about my memories of this period of time from the invasion of Belgium, through the German occupation, and to the immediate post war era For most Belgians this was a hard and sad time full of suffering While I experienced some of that suffering and the fear as well, many of my memories are about exciting events and experiences to a young boy , to the point that I remember this time as an adventure I will justifiably be faulted for talking so lightly about this dark period in Belgium s and the world s history and for seemingly having somewhat enjoyed it all , while people were indiscriminately killed, tortured, and exterminated by the Nazis and while there was much suffering, destruction, maiming, and death Remember though that I was a little boy growing up and mostly unaware of the atrocities occurring away from my immediate environment Also, my parents did their best to shelter me from the many horrors.If a reader is offended by this, I do apologize and want to reassure the reader that now at age 83, I am of course fully aware of the darkness of the years between 1940 and 1945 Seen in this light I do hope that this will be an interesting and enjoyable read for contemporaries and others.I do not want this book to be perceived as historical, but as a series of anecdotes still present in the memory of this little boy There might be some inaccuracies as to time and place, as memories do fade, but all happened.Again I apologize to the reader about the lighthearted way in which I am writing down these memories.
