Example text

In repressing the past, it is as if Anton has attempted to flash-freeze it, to hold it in place until (if ever) he is ready to return to that point. He has not thought about Haarlem for seven years, and has not wondered about what happened to the burnedout truck. During his visit to the street where his house used to be, one of the neighbors has noticed Anton, to his deep dismay: Looking closely, he recognized Mrs. Beumer. She had already noticed him and waved. He was upset. Not once had it occurred to him that she or any of the others might still be living here.

Unfortunately this statement describes in fact the conflicts experienced by many survivors of the occupation – the knowledge that many of the events which had taken place were among the most important that can occur in a human life, combined with a natural unwillingness to go on existing in that mode of heightened anxiety, a wish to return to a more “normal life”, and linked with a lack of understanding of the fact that this set of attitudes placed very high demands on postwar existence, raising the expectations for happiness beyond the reach of the possible.

Under the palm of his hand he felt her soft breast, a strange softness such as he had never felt before, but he didn’t dare remove his hand. (34) Almost as palpable to the reader as the intimacy between the two, is the sense of dread when the woman declares that “it” is almost over: everyone except Anton knows that they will soon be separated, and that she will be tortured and put to death in retribution for the assassination of Ploeg. ” (35) This image will be burned into his memory; or rather, into his heart, and prove to be an ineluctable influence for the rest of his life.
