De Helleveeg



We nicknamed my aunt "Tiny Scrub".

But never said it to her herself.

Aunt Tiny got her cloths

from the humpback.

Handmade by the prison inmates.

If Aunt Tiny didn't like something,

she would be ruthless.

Once, when she was caught smoking...

...she forgot that her apron

was man-made fibre.

Her experimental toothpaste

had been a free gift...

...and she'd rather have inflamed gums

than throw half of it away.

My mother was Tinvs sister.

1 often stayed with my grandparents.

Aunt Tiny knew

lots of exciting stories.

Tiny was such a good liar

that she believed her own fibs.

Only years later I discovered

why she had such an odd character...

...and what had motivated her

a her We.



The slave is called to the job

but this slave stays in bed.

Let the tyrants make their own coffee.

Young Albert, where are you?

Do you know where Tiny is?

Must we discuss it again?

- We've never discussed it decently.

Talk decently about something indecent?

Not in front of the boy.

You go and see if grandpa's cigars

are in his coat pocket.

And if they're not,

go and find them upstairs.

And hurry up.

What you've done is so disgraceful,

there are no words for it.

I'll shout it from the roofs.

I do have words for it.

And you'll only be sorry.

You're not going to the funfair

and that's it.

You know no limits. You're staying in.

Hear me? I'll say it once more:

You're staying here.

No cigars.

So, you've got big plans I see.

I have to hand in my whole salary

to those slave drivers.

But what I earn this way, I keep.

Young Albert is staying with us.

He can help with the lacing.


Don't you want a boyfriend?

They're scared of you,

did you know that?

Scared? Why?

- You slap them.

As a joke.

But you should see your face

when you pinch someone.

OK, I won't pinch or slap again.

Young Albert, want a cigarette?

- No.

You're Hasje van der Serckt, aren't you?

Off to where?

- Amsterdam.

Amsterdam no less.

Did you get fed up,

house painting with Verstegen?


So you're going to be an artist?

Get in, we'll give you a lilt

in the right direction.

What's got into the lad?

Oh, we've seen much worse than this.

I've come to see how Hasje is doing.

Is he gone?

- Yes.

He'd be a good match.

You can see him as often as you like.

Only in the house of course.

Not much progress, is there?

Is this where you are?

- Well spotted.

Wasn't Henneman here?

- He's gone, it's off.

Is it off?

It's off.

- What?

It's off. I have no more to say about it.

At last there's a good man,

a superintendent to be...

Tiny, you never learn for God's sake.

Hello... It's off.

- Off?

Broke it off with Henneman.

- Be free to meddle.

I can't go home, I'm helping Aunt.

Don't let this one go

or I'll never get you another one.

And don't you hit or pinch him either.

He's worth his weight in gold.

I hope he's as fat as a pig.

Still got a headache, young Albert?

Come and I'll take you out.

No wonder you've got a headache:

all those letters! They would blind me.

I want to marry him.

So you're a hotel porter.

That means you're dependent

on a tip here and there.

On top of my regular wages.

I know they don't amount to much...

...but the tips do add up.

It's not a secure job.

- Very insecure.

There's always a chance of promotion.

I want to end up being the manager.

Then you won't be in a draught.

Tiny, how serious is it between you?

We are intending to get engaged.

Isn't that a bit hasty?

An engagement is fine,

but she can't marry until she's twenty.

She's eighteen.

We've always agreed that she wouldn't
