Rijkevorsel mourns Aster Berkhof: “As an ordinary boy from a working-class neighborhood, he has risen to become a celebrated author”


Lisette Van Gorp from Rijkevorsel knew Berkhof well. “As a child I read his books. I recognized the streets and scenes in his novels from the stories my mother told about her childhood in Rijkevorsel. In this way I started a corruption meeting with Berkhof and we had regular contact afterwards.”

Lisette will remember Aster Berkhof as a very kind man. “You should know: I come from the poor neighborhood of Saint Joseph where people had to work hard. I could only go to school until I was 14, because there was no money. Yet with all his knowledge he was always polite and warm to me. . But lately he was not doing so well. I went to the nursing home a few more times. You could see that he was completely exhausted. worn out, while I still knew him as a fierce vital guy “, Van Gorp concludes in” Start your day “.
