Georgette Rimathé-Reyevski 1910-2014

Today is the funeral of 'Tante Bé (aunt Bé, the sister of my grandmother) She became very, very old. When I asked her a few months ago how she felt, she replied with: "Life is tough ! "

I lived with her for a year when I was 18 years old, that was in the house where she has lived for 70 years in the centre of Amsterdam.

She used to tell me how much Amsterdam had changed over the years and how, back then, when she was my age, she would secretly drink Dutch gin together with the men in the bar out of a tea cup, because women weren't supposed to hang around in pubs and drink liquor.

Many things have changed in the century she has lived in:


She was a Dutch actrice, here a little movie for the Dutch viewers:

(ook onze humor is veranderd...)

Zeg 'ns Aaa (speelt grootmoeder)
