WW II Survivor
Josette was a young teen as Nazis began their occupation of her hometown of Brussels, Belgium. She fled the city with her mother while her father made a brave stance against the Nazis by joining the Belgium army. For years, Josette lived as a refuge in Southern France, returning to her hometown prior to the war ending.
Her vintage and vibrant experiences give many colorful examples of overcoming obstacles. Josette’s presentation is a great reminder of what it was like to live through war- including the privations and loss of freedom of speech and liberty.
At 91 years young, Josette (proud to now be an American) provides insight with her unique first-hand knowledge that is only available to most of us through history books. She is the author of Occupied: Through Adolescence and War.
It is a treasure to have Josette share her experiences to audiences of all ages.
