An event with

Bart van Es

The Cut Out Girl


Wednesday 7th November 2018 at 6:30pm  |  Daunt Books Hampstead


The last time Lien de Jong saw her parents was in the Hague, where she was collected at the door by a stranger and taken away to be hidden from the Nazis. She was raised by her foster family as one of their own, but a falling out after the war put an end to their relationship. What was her side of the story, wondered Bart van Es, a grandson of the couple who looked after Lien?  What really happened during the war, and after? So began an investigation that would consume and transform both Bart van Es’s life and Lien’s. Bart van Es will be chatting about the book with writer and literary journalist Emily Rhodes.
