400 letters from my mother, English version


Bestseller: more than 80,000 copies sold!

Joseph Oubelkas was born and raised in the village of Raamsdonksveer in Brabant. He has a wonderful childhood and education, finds love and gets off to a flying start as an IT entrepreneur. The world is his oyster and the future looks bright. Until 23 December 2004, when everything suddenly changes.

A visit to a client in Morocco ends with his arrest and a 10-year prison sentence for something that has nothing to do with him. Joseph is innocent, the verdict unproven, his sentence unwarranted. His world falls apart… But Joseph keeps going. He reads, studies, plays sports, works and makes special friendships. Lovingly supported by family, friends and acquaintances, but especially by the 400 letters from his mother.
