History of the Apostleship of the Sea, Antwerp*

During the liberation on September 5, 1944, collaborators and German prisoners of war were housed in the barracks on the Begijnenvest, next to St. Lievenscollege where Monsignor Lambrechts was a teacher.  He had held Mass and heard confessions from the people there.  Whenever possible food was given and mail distributed.  Monsignor Lambrechts tried to get books for these people to relieve their boredom.  Because of the difficulty in the library of the parish of St. Michael contact was made with Revd. Boogaers to obtain books for the prisoners from the seafarers library, which had little activity at that time.    It was during the first meeting that Revd. Boogaers had with Monsignor Lambrechts that interest was shown for the work with which he was involved.
