About Hendrik Breems

Worked for more than 40 years for the "Nederland Line" (Maatschappij Nederland) company as an oiler in the engine rooms of the liners which were sailing between Amsterdam and Batavia (now Jakarta) in Indonesia, which at that time was a Dutch colony. He made very little money, probably around 5 guilders a week, which meant the family was in semi poverty all the years until the first World War. When he broke his leg in Indonesia, the family was left without any wages for months at a time.
