THE CHILDREN'S HOUSE OF BELSEN by Hetty E. Verlome



The children's house at Belsen was not like the other blocks. If the children didn't die of disease or malnutrition then they didn't die at all. They weren't there to be executed, experimented on or used as slaves and worked to death. Jews so different that they should be eliminated from the face of the Earth as in fact, most of their parents, grandparents and older siblings had been.

Hetty and her two little brothers were forcefully separated from their parents. This is her story; how she as one of the eldest children had to become the ‘Little Mother’ not only taking care of her two brothers but also forty young children living in Barrack 211 known as ‘The Children’s House of Belsen’. At fourteen-years-old, an unimaginable task amidst the inhumane conditions of hunger, cold, sickness death and despair, she kept up her spirits. A truly remarkable story of a young girl’s determination. com/books/about/The Children s House of Belsen. html?hl ru&id GrpeAgAAQBAJ.

Hetty's family was torn apart following the German invasion of the Netherlands. Rounded up by the Nazis and then separated from their parents, Hetty and her brothers were sent to the Children's House, within Belsen concentration camp. As one of the eldest, Hetty became the ?Little Mother?, helping to care for not only her siblings, but the other children as well. In a direct and powerful style, Hetty recalls one of the remarkable, largely untold stories of the Holocaust - the extraordinary struggle and survival of this group of children through those terrible years.

Hetty managed to get in as well even though she was really too old to be there. obviously if they had been sent to Auschwitz the brothers would have gone straight to the gas and possibly she would have too.

Hetty Werkendam came from a Jewish family in the Netherlands. She was just 13 years old in 1943 when she her 2 brothers and their parents were sent to the Westerbork camp. In January 1944 Hetty and her family were sent to the Bergen-Belsen camp. At that time Belsen was a tough place to be, but it wasn't an extermination camp. Towards the end of 1944 first Hetty's father was sent away and then her mother. After that Hetty and her brothers were cared for by Sister Luba, also referred to as "The Angel of Belsen". She had many children in her care, most of whom survived the war. Definitely not an easy book to read, but one with a good message.

I was very interested in the book and the author. You see, my husband, Oscar Lehmann was one of the children. He recently had the opportunity to speak with Hetty Verolme, and remembered her well. The book was fascinating to us. My husband, as well wrote his autobiography some years ago, so there was so much to compare. The book arrived in excellent condition, and we enjoyed it a lot. Thank you.

This book was really well written. Interesting to see the internment camp through the eyes of a child.

A well written, to the point, account of life in the Westerbork repatriation camp and the horrors of Belson concentration camp from a child's perspective.

Any story that deals with war, children and suffering is bound to be moving but throughout you find yourself filled with admiration for such remarkable young children and the bravery of their parents and those, like Sister Luba 'The Angel of Belson' who did their utmost to ensure the childrens' survival.

My 16 year old daughter recommended this to me and I recommend it strongly to anyone who wants to know more about life in the camps and how the people who were there got through it...or sadly in some cases, didn't.

Far from being depressing (although I'm not claiming to have remained dry eyed throughout) Hetty's account fills you with admiration for the inner strength of the children and pride for those who fought and liberated the camps.

The Children’s House of Belsen is by Hetty Verolme. It is the story of thirteen-year-old Hetty Verolme and her brothers and parents who were taken from Amsterdam to Westerbork and on to Bergen-Belsen. They had certificates to exempt them from deportation so they were among the last to leave. Even then, they were in the Star Camp which was much better than being in the camp itself. Here they were with their parents and could see each other each day. Then their Father was taken away due to an argument with an officer. Then, their Mother was deported to another camp. This left then fourteen-year-old Hetty in charge of her younger brothers, Max and Jacky. Luckily, they ended up in the Children’s House in Bergen-Belsen. There, under the care of Sister Luba, they survived the war.
The details she gives are wonderful. While reading, you can feel her emotions and those of the other children. That she and her brothers survived together is amazing. This book is basically the same as her book, Hetty, so reading one is enough.
