Remembering Edith Cavell WW1 Nurse with Terri Arthur

Join us on a tour to celebrate and commemorate the life and work of British nurse Edith Cavell.

Edith Cavell started the first professional school of nursing in Brussels in 1907. Immediately before World War I she returned to Brussels. She and her staff continued nursing the people of Brussels and soldiers from both sides of the conflict. She refused to hand over Allied soldiers to the German occupiers and worked for nine months to help over 200 soldiers reach neutral Holland.

Eventually members of the ‘underground’ group she was working with were all arrested. After ten weeks in solitary confinement she was tried with 34 others in October 1915. They were found guilty of conveying soldiers to the enemy and she and a Brussels architect, Philippe Baucq, were executed by firing squad at dawn on 12 October 1915.

Edith Cavell’s work as a nurse and in training nurses goes on today through the on-going work in the UK of the Cavell Nurses’ Trust. In Brussels a hospital close to her original clinique still bears her name. Terri Arthur is an Is an award winning American author and the only nurse to have written a book about Edith Cavell. Her research spanned over six years with many trips to the UK and Belgium. She holds degrees in nursing, education and biology, and a MS in Health Business Management. The nurses in Norwich refer to her as "The American Cavellite" a title given to her as an honour and in recognition for her work. She has been invited to join in the ceremonies memorializing Edith Cavell's life and death.
