Kats, Jacob
(1804-1886)
   Jacob Kats was born in Antwerp on 5 May 1804. A Dutch-language writer, he founded the Verbroedering group (1833) and wrote several plays in the 1830s characterized by strong social and anticlerical content. He organized meetings in Brussels to advance Flemish rights (1836-1848), participated in the publication of weekly newspapers, and served as a pioneer activist in both the socialist and the Flemish movements. Kats died in Brussels on 14 January 1886.
