Jan Eekhout (1930)


Dutch writer, poet and translator, particularly known as the author of the novel Pastoor Poncke ("Pastor Poncke"). During the Second World War Eekhout was a staunch Nazi. However, the Dutch resistance fighter Jan "Poncke" Princen gained his nickname by reading aloud from this book to fellow-prisoners in a Nazi prison during World War II.

He died on 6 March 1978, aged 78, in Amsterdam.
