Book published in North Korea in 1974. This book once belonged to Andries Oele. Inside the books you’ll find the signature of him. Oele was a well-known and notorious radical Maoist in the 1970’s in the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He always stood out by standing at the back of a hall at meetings and public gatherings (such as May 1 celebrations) and shouting his slogans (“Death to capital! Long live Marxism-Leninism! Long live Chairman Mao!”). While the many small communist splinter groups were happy with any soul they could recruit, they would rather lose Andries than get rich. Nevertheless he was a member of KORO (Communist Organization Rotterdam and Surroundings). Andries Oele worked in construction so the left-wing intellectual Rotterdam got some appreciation for this: a real worker, after all. In 1977 Oele was caught in bed with someone’s wife. Her deceived husband immediately took a gun and shot both Andries and his own wife. A double murder. A Dutch Maoist publisher was asked to clean out Oele’s house. Behind the frontdoor he found a wonderful house that had been completely renovated as if it were a ship’s cabin. You had to duck to go inside and could look through portholes to other dark spaces. He collected all Oele’s books, almost entirely Marxist-Leninist works and works by old Dutch socialists, such as Troelstra and Domela Nieuwenhuis.
