Bamanya: Books in the Jungle

Honoré Vinck
Portrait by Ingrid Bouws

Mbandaka is the centre of the world, if you stand in front of a world map and draw a diagonal cross. It is where Henry Morton Stanley founded an ‘outpost of progress’: Equator Station, the beginning of the history of this small town on the equator. Nowadays Mbandaka is one of the biggest towns in Congo, with an estimated population of 100.000-150.000 inhabitants. Located on the river Congo, it is a poor town, with little or no industry.

Traces of ‘l’époque coloniale’ can be found in the town centre. Along wide streets stand beautiful houses, or their remains, where the colonials once lived. Thirty years of decay have not left much intact. Mbandaka is the capital of the province of Equateur. The region is looked upon with some condescendence by the rest of Congo: it is the land of hunters and fishermen.

The mission village Bamanya is located ten kilometres outside of Mbandaka. The sandy road that leads there is paved with gaps and holes, many of them filled with yellowish water.

On the first morning of my stay there, the sound of jubilation wakes me up. Some two hundred children’s voices singing make the best alarm ever. Once a week the children of the mission school walk to a village nearby, singing the whole journey.
It is six thirty. I take a cold shower and when I get dressed, sweat is running down my face. Read more

Peter de Brock ~ ‘Elke dag is een stap dichter bij onze ondergang’ – Het Parool

Het Parool – 10 november 2018: ‘Elke dag is een stap dichter bij onze ondergang’

De Duits-Joodse Paula Bermann, getrouwd met de Joodse zakenman Coenraad van Es uit Amsterdam, houdt tijdens de Duitse bezetting een dagboek bij. De eerste twee bezettingsjaren is ze in Amsterdam, later schrijft ze vanaf een onderduikadres in Jutphaas (nu Nieuwegein). Na verraad wordt ze met echtgenoot Coen en dochter Inge op transport gezet naar Bergen-Belsen. Haar dagboek is nu ontcijferd en alsnog uitgeven als Deze ontspoorde wereld.

‘Is er in Duitsland geen medelijden en erbarmen met het Joodse volk? Verheft zich nooit een stem die ertegen in opstand komt?’ vraagt Paula van Es-Bermann zich in november 1940 af in haar dagboek. Ze woont dan op het adres Valeriusstraat 135-huis in Amsterdam-Zuid, met echtgenoot Coen, zoon Hans (20), die geneeskunde studeert, en dochters Inge (16) en Sonja (13). Daar worstelt ze met haar leven als ‘huissloof’ voor haar man, die sinds de beurscrisis werkloos is, en met het onbegrip van de kinderen, ‘die niet houden van mijn manier van doen, die hun vaak Duits voorkomt, aan mijn accent hebben ze een hekel.’
