Now at BHC - WWII Books in Honor of D-Day 80th Anniversary

As we mark the 80th Anniversary of D-Day, BHC is pleased to announce the addition of two important books to our offerings.  "Alfred: The Quiet History of a World War II Infantryman" by Louise Endres Moore tells the story of her father Alfred, a reluctant front-line machine gunner in Europe 1944-1945.  "Shot Down" by Steve Snyder shares his father's experiences after his plane was shot down on the France/Belgium border and the assistance he received from Belgians to hide him from the Germans.

Available at the Belgian Heritage Center or email contact@belgianheritagecenter.org.
