Life in Crazy Times: An American Internee in War-torn Europe with Lou de Beer

Life in Crazy Times: An American Internee in Warn-torn Europe with Lou de Beer
Thursday, November 8 • 5 p.m.
Geisel Library, Seuss Room 
Register for the event 

This event is sold out but walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis if seats become available.

On Thursday, November 8, the HLHW series will feature Lodewyk “Lou” de Beer.

Lou de Beer

“I live in crazy times,” Anne Frank wrote in her attic on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Lou might have echoed that sentiment, though his life was not in immediate danger. The son of American parents, Lou was born in Amsterdam. As a boy, he witnessed the arrival of the German troops in 1940 and lived through 18 months of occupation. When the US joined the war against Germany, the de Beers were declared enemy aliens and subjected to a lengthy odyssey through concentration and internment camps in Holland, France and Germany.

On the periphery of the war and the Holocaust, Lou caught glimpses of devastation and oppression without fully grasping their significance, though he would experience the hardship of war firsthand during his service in Korea in the 1950s. His experience adds an important and generally overlooked angle to the history of the Second World War in Europe.

For more information about UC San Diego’s Holocaust Living History Workshop, contact Susanne Hillman at (858) 534-7661. To register for the event by phone, contact Ellysa Lim at (858) 534-1183. Please note: If you’re unable to reserve a seat before the event sells out, walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis if seats become available.
