Interview with Madame le Maire-Dresse
On the occasion of the inauguration of the exhibition devoted to the 100th anniversary of the Belgian Deaf sport Committee (B.D.C.), we had the honor of receiving Madame le Maire-Dresse, daughter of the pioneer of the Federation, Antoine Dresse.
It was while browsing the exhibition that Madame Dresse (aged 93 and CODA) was kind enough to give us a few minutes for an improvised interview.
We let you discover this video and already thank Madame Dresse for the permission to broadcast this special moment ! Source interview by Vince Ameloot.
