Pierre grows up in a family still scarred by the Great War. When the Second World War breaks out, the Germans invade Belgium. Pierre’s yearning for freedom and justice drives him to join the Resistance to fight the occupying enemy. On 30 December 1942, the German Gestapo apprehend him at home and the teenage boy ends up in a German concentration camp, where he is subjected on a daily basis to the horrors taking place. He never loses heart, because American and British airplanes regularly appear in the skies overhead.

Belgian author Vera Mertens made her debut in 2015 with Nakato, followed in 2016 by The Mystery of Göteborg. She then realized the time had come to put her father’s war experiences on paper, so the younger generation could learn from his ordeal. The result is The Concentration Camp: The True Story of a Belgian Teenager. She is currently working on a book about the dangerous world in which we live today.
