D-Day Lunchbox Lecture ~ Regine’s Story: A Tale Of Survival In Occupied Belgium

October 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The National D-Day Memorial is pleased to offer an extra Lunchbox Lecture this autumn so our supporters can experience an inspiring tale  of heroism and endurance. At noon on October 26th, at the Bedford Area Welcome Center, Regine Nozyce Archer will share her unique WWII experiences in war-torn Belgium.

Born in 1924 in Krakow, Poland, Regine’s family moved to Liege Belgium when she was a young girl, little knowing that by 1940 they would be caught up in a great global conflict.

Forced to hide her Jewish heritage from the Nazi occupiers, Regine and her sister took refuge in a Belgian convent, where only the Mother Superior knew the truth about the refugees.  When the war returned to Belgium in 1944, she became a nurse for wounded soldiers and civilians, and eventually an interpreter for the U.S. Army, where she met her future husband.

The inspiring and captivating story will leave you amazed and profoundly moved.

The program is free and open to the public.  Guests are invited to bring a lunch.
