I wrote this today on September 11, 2008. Not international news, not news at all, but for me true history about WW2, the Home de Leffe and the blonde beer of Leffe.
Many years later, in 2002, after an opening of an exhibition in Tel Aviv, a few of us where thirsty, so we invade a neighbour pub to drink something. I saw that one of my friends was drinking a blonde beer in a beer glass with the imprint ‘Home de Leffe.” Looking at the bottle I immediately recognise the Home de Leffe where I hide for a year from the Nazis, in 1942.
I am not a beer drinker and know nothing about beer, only that it has a bitter taste. But this time I ordered a beer from the “brewery of the Home de Leffe“ and to my great surprise the taste was nor bitter but sweet. In some unknown way, I realised that my sejour at the Home de Leffe has many reminiscences of this actual sweetness of the beer.
And here is the beer:
