Anneke Derksen: Born (in the year of who knows when) of Jewish holocaust survivors and raised in Holland's most orthodox catholic part, the province of Noord Brabant, in a village called Oudenbosch. Opened up her eyes to the ringing of the bells of the replica of the Rome St. Pieter basilica. Marked for life.
From the time she learned to write and inspired by Anne Frank's diaries, she started to write her own diaries for years and years to come. In those diaries she found the inspiration for her poems. Above that she found in singer-songwriter Bob Dylan a congenial spirit, he became her Muse. Desire and Love, two inexhaustible sources.
