Remco Campert

in Den Haag, Netherlands
July 29, 1929



Remco Wouter Campert was born in The Hague, son of writer and poet Jan Campert, author of the poem De achttien dooden, and actress Joekie Broedelet. His parents got divorced when he was three years old, causing him to sometimes live with either of his parents and sometimes his grandparents, depending on situations and circumstances. His father died in 1943 in a Nazi concentration camp, Neuengamme. Remco then went to live with his mother. They returned to Amsterdam after World War II in 1945, after having spent the three preceding years in the town of Epe.

“مقاومت با حرف‌های بزرگ شروع نمی‌شود
بلکه با کارهای کوچک
مانند خش‌خش آرام طوفان در باغچه
یا گربه‌ای که تلوتلو می‌خورد
مانند رودخانه‌های بزرگ
با سرچشمه‌ی کوچک
در دل جنگلی
مانند حریفی بزرگ
با همان کبریتی که
سیگاری را هم روشن می‌کند
مانند عشق در یک نگاه
و به دل نشستن صدایی که تو را جذب می‌کند
مقاومت با پرسشی از خود
آغاز می‌شود
و سپس همان سوال را از دیگری پرسیدن.”
Remco Campert

“Ik verveel me niet. Ik ben ongelukkig.'
'Omdat je in geluk gelooft. Iedereen die in geluk gelooft is ongelukkig.”
Remco Campert, Het leven is vurrukkulluk

“Asking yourself a question, that's how resistance begins. And then ask that very question to someone else.”
Remco Campert
