Toon Van den Brempt (° 1945) was an official of the Flemish Government, Department of Work and Social Economy until 2010.

"The development and combination of technical, social and artistic skills has always fascinated me and continues to inspire me. Also for example in relation to give testimony of the war past of our family and the processing of this past. The television series 'Children of the Collaboration ', the book 'The sorrow of Flanders' and the eponymous musical-literary performance illustrate this."
