What’s On – Extra

Click on this link to see what fun and exciting things are happening in Luxembourg this summer to keep you busy.

Fondation Partage Luxembourg, previously named Fondation Bridderlech Deelen (www.partage.lu).  A non-governmental organization for development cooperation, Bridderlech
Deelen was founded in 1966 to express the solidarity of the citizens living in Luxembourg with the people in distress throughout the world, without distinction of race, culture or religion.

In 2016, Bridderlech Deelen celebrated its 50th anniversary alongside its partner-organizations from Africa, Latin America and Asia, visiting Luxembourg on the occasion of the festivities. Using the opportunity of this Jubilee, the Foundation changed its name and its logo and is now called: partage.lu (Fondation Partage Luxembourg).

We support development projects in Africa, Latin America and Asia, mainly in the following fields: education, food security, family farming and agro-ecology as well as defense of human rights, especially the rights of indigenous people (in Brazil, for example) and women (in India, for example), and fighting against poverty through income-generating activities.

Luxembourg Battles

I have three books about Luxembourg available on Amazon as e-books and print on demand:

Victims Nonetheless: The Invasion of Luxembourg, 1914.
Luxembourgers in World War One: An Inventory
Walking the Frontiers

The first covers the events before and after the start of World War One. It has already been the subject of a BBC documentary in the Michael Portillo series, “Railways of World War One”, and will shortly be the subject of a second documentary to be broadcast on the ‘Yesterday’ channel in the ‘Extreme Railways’ series.

The second book is a detailed inventory, including biographies, of every Luxembourg who served in any army, Belgian, French, British, Canadian, Italian, German and US, during the war. Wherever available details of burials are given with citations, medals awarded, etc.
In the case of the US army, draft registration card details are given even for those men who do not appear to have actually served in the army. Once again, burial details are given wherever possible whether they died during or after the war.
Also given are details of Luxembourgers executed during the war, civilians arrested, and so on.
This is the first book to cover this important subject.

The third book covers the walking around the whole of Luxembourg by a group of intrepid British men in 1980 to 1982. This is the first time this has been done, and the first book to cover this amazing feat.
