Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:
Tineke Vroman-Sanders was a medical anthropologist and started to write at a later age. She debuted in 1990 under her maiden name with the poetry collection Het onvoltooid bestaan [The unfinished existence]. Her latest publication was the poetry book Een huis om in te slapen (2007). She also wrote a number of books together with her husband, who besides being a poet also was a biologist.
The two became engaged in 1938. Shortly after the German invasion Leo went to England and then to the Dutch East Indies. There he was arrested after the invasion of the Japanese. He was in various Japanese camps and did not see Tineke again until after the war. They married in 1947, had two daughters and were virtually inseparable.
