The whale oil hunters

De Traanjagers –¬†Herinneringen van naoorlogse walvisvaarders

Anne-Goaitske Breteler

Amsterdam University Press, 2018

EAN: 9789462983816

 

The whalers of yesteryear viewed from the perspective of the times. They are all men in their eighties, for example Durk van der Veen who had the illustrious nickname Durk Wytfisk.
‘Oral history’ supplemented by the necessary archive work. And that yielded the insight that in the Dongeradelen and on the Wadden Islands there was relatively high interest in signing on for whaling in the period 1946-1964.

 

Anne-Goaitske Breteler visited a handful of still-living whalers at home, describing the memories they still have in old age. These stories have been compiled in the book De Traanjagers.

 

De resten van de walvis werden op het vleesdek tot kleine hompen vlees verwerkt. (Afbeeldingen: boek / AUP)
