I WAS TWELVE AND I BICYCLED TO SCHOOL
Sabine Dardenne is twelve years old when she is dragged from her bicycle by Marc Dutroux and his accomplice, drugged in a van and taken to an unknown house. What Sabine has to endure there is terrible. She has to undress, Dutroux puts a necklace around her neck and binds her to a bed with it. After a few days, Sabine is taken to a cellar, where she is repeatedly harassed by Dutroux in the time that follows. At the end of her captivity she is joined by Laetitia Delhez and a few days later the girls are freed by the police. ‘I Was Twelve And Cycled To School’ is an extraordinary testimony from a young woman who spent eighty days in captivity before being rescued from death.
Sabine Dardenne wrote this book so that the voice of the victims will finally be heard and the fascination with these kinds of monsters will disappear forever. “I am one of the few lucky enough to escape such a murderer. Telling this story is a necessity for me and if I have the courage to reconstruct this hellhole, it is mainly so that judges don’t release pedophiles halfway through their prison term for ‘good behavior’, and without any warning. NRC Handelsblad: “It is not easy to imagine a more heartbreaking book than ‘I was twelve and cycled to school’ by Sabine Dardenne, or it should be Anne Frank’s ‘The Secret Annex’.”
