Review: Secret Brussels has one of those titles that appears to be trying to fool you. If yo buy me, it suggests, you will know what lurks in the city's underbelly, what was heretofore "secret". And, as it turns out, this little book does indeed reveal hidden treasures. The Museum of Free-masonry, for instance, sits unmarked on Rue de Laeken and you ll likely be the only visitor, guided about by an amiable curator. If you ask tactfully , it notes, you might be able to see the temple at the back, only open to freemasons. The book is full of such comments. "Ask politely", "stay unobtrusive" because much of what it leads you to aren't tourist destinations. The inner façade of the Maison du Spectacle la Bellone, for instance, is beautiful and accessible during business hours but is usually only seen by theatre-goers. Among the more than 200 listings, you'll also discover the sci-fi lift at the Museum of Modern Art, tours of Brussels' sewers by actual sewer workers, where to find entrances to the labyrinth of trails in the rambling Cite Forest-Vert and how to successfully manage the toilets at the Belga Queen.

Buchbeschreibung Luster Publishing Jun 2014, 2014. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - 'The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels' reveals these good-to-know addresses and many, many more.

Buchbeschreibung OUP USA Oxford University Press Jun 2017, 2017. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - An Englishwoman living in World War I Brussels started a secret diary in September 1916. The diary, which survived the war and whose author remained anonymous, ended up in a Belgian archive. This book brings to light both the diary and the story of the woman who wrote it: a middle-aged English governess working for a Belgian-Russian family in German-occupied Brussels. Mary Thorp (1864 -1945) grew up in London and in Bruges. Like many educated young women ofimpoverished middle-class backgrounds, she worked as a governess. Neither a servant nor a member of the upper classes that employed her, she harbored a sturdy middle-class outlook stressing self-reliance and responsibility for others - the very attitude that underlay societies' resilience in the face of war. Her diary expresses this attitude but also the strains on it as the war wore on. Thorp did not only crossed classes; she crossed national borders as well. Her diary's perspective is transnational. She followed the wartime fate of her widely dispersed friends and family. She tracked military news from theaters both far-flung and nearby. And, because of her privileged access to diplomats from Spain, the Netherlands, the US, Persia, and Japan, she tallied wider war news - on peace overtures, the Russian Revolution, and discontent in Germany. At the same time, Thorp remained attuned to local dynamics in Brussels, the First World War's largest occupied city. Alert to both structural constraints and individual stories, she showed how the occupying army sought to exploit Belgium, but also how this rebutted some in the German military. Uniquely, her diary also documents the Armistice and its immediate aftermath, for she kept it up until January 1919. In this volume, Tammy M. Proctor and Sophie De Schaepdrijver provide a biographical introduction on Thorp, an overview of the war in occupied Belgium, and detailed annotations to the diary. 288 pp. Englisch.
