  John Pesulima
   
Jonas (John) PESULIMA
Born in Tanimbar on 6 December 1943, he died in Nijmegen on 21 November 2007.
He was married in ... on ... to ... (Wil) MAAS, daughter of ... .

John Pesulima heeft ondermeer gewerkt als welzijnswerker. Hij was tevens beleidsmedewerker van het Landelijk Overlegorgaan Welzijn Molukkers.

Enkele jaren voor zijn overlijden heeft John ons nog zijn persoonlijke geschiedenis verteld:
‘Mijn vader heeft op Ambon de Stovil gedaan, de opleiding tot inlands leraar en predikant. Daar heeft hij les gehad van onder anderen de bekende dominee Tutuarima. Na zijn studie werd mijn vader uitgezonden naar Tanimbar.
Ik ben geboren op Tanimbar op 6 december 1943, als derde kind, na mijn als baby overleden broer Ferrie en mijn zus Mary. Van Tanimbar heb ik nog vage herinnering aan ons huis in Fulmamang(?), dicht bij het strand en het bos. Ook kan ik mij de school waar mijn vader les gaf nog herinneren. Op Tanimbar heeft mijn vader vluchtelingen geholpen aan een onderduik-adres en met de oversteek naar Australië. Het ging om zowel Molukkers als Nederlanders.’

‘Toen ik een jaar of drie, vier was zijn we naar Ambon terug gegaan. Mijn vader ging daar werken in het dorp Naku in de bergen. Op Ambon kende ik opa en oma Puturuhu, van mijn moeders kant. Opa en oma zijn ‘gelijkgesteld’. Opa is wel eens in aanvaring gekomen met het Nederlandse gezag en heeft nog in Dikul (?) op Nw. Guinea gevangen gezeten. Opa en oma Pesulima heb ik niet gekend. Van de familie ken ik alleen de vrouw van mijn vaders broer Itja. Zij leeft nog. (In 2002. EG) We noemden haar mama Jos. Bij haar heb ik in februari/maart 2001, nog gelogeerd.
Via één van de mensen die hij tijdens de oorlog heeft geholpen op Tanimbar, kreeg mijn vader een aanstelling als legerpredikant bij het KNIL. Ik kan me nog goed herinneren dat mijn vader voor ons uit naar Sumatra vertrok. Wij gingen later. Eerst met het vliegtuig, later per boot over de rivier naar Palembang. In Palembang werd ik samen met andere kinderen dagelijks met een militaire truck naar school gebracht en gehaald. Wij woonden daar met de familie Saimima, de peetouders van mijn broer Alex, in een groot huis. Later zijn we naar Malang (Java) gegaan. Daar woonden we in een wat afgelegen deel van de Tangsi. Het was een leuke tijd. De school was voor de Tangsi. Op de achtergrond woedde een hevige strijd tussen nationalisten en het KNIL. Dit is ongeveer in 1948-1949 (?). Mijn vader was vaak weg. Ik weet alleen dat hij met anderen in een aantal jeeps vertrok.
Korte tijd later vertrokken we weer om in Surabaya neer te strijken. Van daaruit zijn we naar Nederland vertrokken, met het schip Skaubryn. Die overtocht was voor ons kinderen heel boeiend. Met name de aankomst in Egyptische Port Said en de tocht door het Suezkanaal waren hoogtepunten van de reis. Mijn zusje Lies was erg ziek tijdens de overtocht. Zij heeft door haar vallende ziekte het grootste deel van de boottocht in de ziekenboeg doorgebracht. Wat me ook goed is bijgebleven is dat het schip een keer erg onrustig was. Kennelijk was er een ketel overbelast geraakt. Iedereen moest bovendeks komen en reddingsvesten om doen. De sloepen werden klaar gemaakt maar gelukkig hoefden we uiteindelijk niet van boord en liep het allemaal met een sisser af.
Na onze aankomst in Rotterdam gingen we al snel door naar Amersfoort om even later naar Assen (Westerbork) te vertrekkenn. Weer later werd het kamp Beugelen bij Staphorst onze woonplek. Dat was omdat mijn vader de regio midden-Nederland kreeg toegewezen om als predikant onder zijn hoede te nemen. Hier hebben we een jaar of vijf á zes gewoond. Vervolgens verhuisden we naar De Biezen, het woonoord bij Barneveld. In De Biezen ben ik eigenlijk opgegroeid. Aan het vele verhuizen kwam een eind toen we uiteindelijk in de Molukse wijk in Lunteren kwamen te wonen.
Als volwassenene ben ik naar de Molukse wijk Hatert in Nijmegen verhuist. We zijn gaan wonen in het huis van de ouders van mijn vrouw Wil.’

  Joop Pesulima
   
Jacob Jopie (uncle Joop) PESULIMA
He was born Lokki (Seram) 4 January 1927, he died in Rotterdam on 7 October 2001. He was married to Hendrika (aunt Henny) HEIKOOP, born in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel (The Netherlands) on 16 April 1936, daughter of Jacobus HEIKOOP and Aaltje KWAKERNAAK.

Oom Joop is geboren in Lokki op Seram. Zijn vader was daar toen werkzaam als inlands leraar. Als 1-jarig kind verhuisde hij naar Galala op Ambon. Daar heeft hij tot de oorlog gewoond. Oom Joop: 'In Galala woonden meerdere Pesulima's. Een broer van mijn vader was Ambrosius. Neven van mijn vader waren Johanis, Daniël, Cornelis en Simon. Dit waren broers van elkaar. Daarnaast had je Toet, Nanny en nog een derde broer, waarvan ik de naam vergeten ben. De vrouw van oom Nanny bakte altijd brood. Daar haalde ik dan vaak warme broodjes.
'Vaak logeerde ik als kleine jongen samen met mijn broer Dolf bij een andere oom, oom Elisa. Wij noemden hem Elisa cekkot, omdat hij aan zijn handen verminkt was. Als gevolg van gevechten in de Aceh-oorlog had hij enkele vingers verloren. Oom Elisa was getrouwd met een Javaanse vrouw maar had geen kinderen. Ik was toen een jaar of zeven en hij moet tegen de zestig geweest zijn. Hij was grijs. Oom Elisa en tante woonden in een groot huis. Zij hadden een slingergrammofoon waar ik helemaal verzot op was. Ik kon er dagen naar luisteren. Mijn tante draaide dan aan de slinger want wij mochten er niet aankomen. Een van de liedjes was van de zanger Willy Derby. Oom Elisa vertelde vaak over de Aceh-oorlog. Ook de buren kwamen dan en wij luisterden ademloos naar die verhalen. In Aceh had hij ook de latere minister-president Colijn gezien.' Elisa 'cekkot' Pesulima komt ook voor in deze stamboom. Zie onder bij A.2.3.1.
'Vanaf ongeveer mijn zesde jaar, ging ik naar school. Dat was de Tweede Christelijke Hollandse Inlandse School in Ambon-stad, in de wijk Belakan-Soya. Daar heb ik tot 1939 op gezeten. Toen werd het gebouw gevorderd door het geallieerde leger van Amerika en Australië (op Ambon was een grote basis van dit leger.) We liepen altijd met een groep kinderen uit Galala naar school in Ambon-stad. Op school heb ik les gehad van juffrouw Tanasale, juffrouw Papilaya, juffrouw De Lima (zij gaf Nederlands in de derde klas). De derde klas duurde twee jaar. In het tweede jaar kregen we Maleis en Arabisch van meneer Gaspers. De hoofdonderwijzer was meneer Van den Bos.'
'Ik was de lieveling van mijn moeder, juist omdat ik het buitenbeentje was en weleens klappen kreeg van mijn vader. Hoe streng mijn vader was, daar kan ik wel een boek over schrijven. Ik heb twee jaar, van 1937 tot 1939 bij familie van moeders kant, de familie Tuhuteru, in Ambon-stad gewoond. De vrouw van oom Tuhuteru is een zus van mijn moeder. Oom Tuhuteru was schoolopziener.'
'Een andere oom was oom Hendrik in Batavia. Mijn vader was meen ik de jongste. Toen ik in 1982 naar Ambon op vakantie ging kwam ik bij toeval Ben tegen, een zoon van oom Hendrik.'
'Ik heb de grootouders van mijn vaders kant nog gekend. De oudste broer van mijn vader heette Jacob, ik ben naar hem genoemd. Hij hield van feesten en was altijd erg lollig. Mijn oma heette Kepi. Zij komt uit Galala. Mijn opa heette Josias (?), daar heb ik mijn tweede voornaam van. De oma van mijn moeders kant heette Maerissa.'
'Een andere oom is oom Simon. Hij is de vader van tante Mina. (Hermina.)'
'Oom Schenkhuysen heb ik gekend in die tijd. Hij was politieman. Als hij kwam moesten we ons altijd netjes gedragen, hij was immers een Hollander. Ik herinner me dat hij eraan kwam op zijn motorfiets met zijn lange laarzen aan. Zij kwamen vaak vissen in Galala. Ze gingen veel met oom Nanny om.'
'Van kleins af aan gingen we altijd naar Soya. Dat was van ongeveer 5 tot 15 december als daar het “schoonmaken van het dorp” werd gevierd. Wij slapen dan in het ouderlijk huis van Pesulima, de mata rumah. Daar wonen de ouders van tante Pantjie die nu in Wierden woont.'
'In 1942, begin 1943 ben ik door de Japanners te werk gesteld in Lokki op Seram. Ik was toen veertien jaar. Ik ging samen met oom Rudolf. Hij is op Lokki aan een hartaanval overleden. De Japanners dwongen je om lid te worden van een soort padvinderbeweging, de Sonendang. Je moest toch eten. We moesten helpen bos kappen en op die grond moesten we dan groenten verbouwen. Het werk begon om zes uur ’s ochtends. ’s Avonds na zes uur ging je nog een paar uur naar school, om Japans te leren. In Lokki leerde ik veel Pesulima's kennen van de tak die daar woont. Ik kende Tentoeloe (Rudolf), Daniël, Barend, Bastiaan, Willem, Sacharias, Maarten, Topiloes, Josepoes, Cornelis, allemaal Pesulima's van Lokki. In 1943 kreeg ik bericht dat mijn vader was overleden. Op Seram heb ik ook nog in Ariati gewerkt. Daar moesten we groente telen. Oom Wim en oom Bas waren daar ook.'
'Na de bevrijding in 1945 kon ik terug naar huis. Samen met Eli Mailuhu ben ik toen naar Ambon gegaan. Eli is de zoon van mijn peetvader. We stapten bij Galala aan land op Leitimor. In Galala was alles plat. We zijn toen doorgelopen naar Ambon-stad. Daar hebben we één nacht gelogeerd. De volgende dag ben ik alleen teruggegaan naar Galala.'
'Galala was helemaal plat gebombardeerd. Vanaf de rivier Wairoegoe tot kilometers verder stond geen huis meer overeind. Mijn ouders leefden niet meer en ik wist niet waar mijn broers gebleven waren. Een nicht heeft me toen gezien bij de de resten van mijn ouderlijk huis. Via haar ben ik toen bij haar gezin, de familie Jozef, opgevangen. Het was al met al niet zo prettig. Er was armoe en bij het eten gingen de kinderen voor. Ik sliep bij haar schoonvader op de kamer. Hij had oedeem en was ernstig ziek. Uiteindelijk werd ik zelf ook ziek, ik was helemaal kapot, lichamelijk en geestelijk. Toen kwam mijn broer Dolf terug. Hij nam me mee naar Cornelis, ik noemde hem Yong Tété. Daar ben ik toen gaan wonen en via hen kon ik bij de Australiërs op Ambon werk krijgen. Later heb ik nog in de militaire bunker gewoond, waar weeskinderen werden opgevangen.'
'Bij het begin van de Japanse bezetting, eind ’42, begin ’43, hadden inwoners van Galala aan Australische onderduikers eten gegeven. Als straf hebben de Japanners tientallen Galalanezen onthoofd. Na de oorlog kwamen de Australiërs terug. Zij voeren de baai van Ambon binnen en legden aan voor Galala. Wij kregen eten en kleding van hen, en een jeep. De Australiërs lieten het toe dat elke dag een paar Japanners uit de gevangenis werden gehaald. Uit wraak werden die op een gruwelijke manier mishandeld en kwamen daarbij vaak om het leven.'

Toen deed zich eind 1946 voor Jacob Pesulima de kans voor om in dienst te gaan bij de KNIL.
'Oorspronkelijk zou ik naar de kweekschool gaan om òf leraar, òf predikant te worden. Het was absoluut niet de bedoeling dat je in het leger ging in ons gezin. Dat deed je niet als je ouders allebei leraar waren. Ook als je vader dominee is, mag je niet in dienst. Na de oorlog was het leger echter de enige kans voor mij om aan werk te komen en te ontsnappen aan de puinhoop die de oorlog had veroorzaakt. De militaire dienst was mijn kans om te overleven. Op verschillende manieren werd bekend gemaakt dat het Nederlandse bestuur soldaten nodig had. Behalve bij de landmacht, waar ik me voor aangemeld heb, kon je ook naar de marine of de politie. Het was nog een heel gedoe om papieren te regelen, want door de oorlog waren alle documenten verloren gegaan. Ik kreeg een voorlopige geboorteakte en zodoende kon ik mij aanmelden. Toen bleek ik ook nog niet het vereiste gewicht te hebben, ik moest eerst aankomen. Toen ik uiteindelijk goedgekeurd was ging ik naar de recrutenkazerne op Ambon. Daar heb ik zo'n zes maand gezeten.'
'Als KNIL-soldaat ben ik zodoende op Java terecht gekomen. We hebben eerst een dag of drie bij Batavia voor de kust gelegen. Toen we aan land gingen waren er eerst gevechten samen met Engelse soldaten, hoofdzakelijk mensen uit India en Pakistan trouwens. Die eerste gevechten als soldaat maakten natuurlijk veel indruk op ons. Velen hadden liever een retour Ambon genomen. De eerste tijd bleven we in Batavia. Ik werkte daar later als chauffeur bij de staf. Stukje bij beetje trokken we verder Java in. Via meester Cornelis en Buitenzorg gingen we naar Batu Jajar, Tjimahi, Bandung en Sentosa bij Garut, het Papangdajanggebergte in.'
'Op Java heb ik mijn broer Dolf terug gezien. Later zag ik opeens mijn broer Domingus, die toen legerpredikant was en een dienst voor ons hield.'
'Later heb ik nog op Makassar, Paré Paré en Surabaja gezeten, om uiteindelijk weer via Batavia terug te keren naar Tjimahi. Veel van deze omzwervingen maakte ik samen met overste De Jong, voor wie ik als chauffeur werkte.'
'Enkele maanden voor onze boottocht naar Nederland hoorde ik van mijn overste dat wij naar Nederland zouden gaan. Hij zei “Pesu”, zo noemde hij mij, “als je naar Nederland gaat, zorg dan dat je een oude bekende opzoekt, een baan vindt en trouwt, want je gaat nooit meer terug”. Ik geloofde er natuurlijk niets van. Maar éénmaal in Nederland ben ik vanaf Middelburg, waar we aankwamen, naar een dienstkameraad gegaan in Nieuwerkerk a/d IJssel, waar ik in de kost kon komen. Hij was een Hollander die als dienstplichtige bij de Koninklijke Landmacht in Indië had gediend.'
'Ik had werk bij een scheepswerf in Capelle. Ik heb cursussen gevolgd en kon bij Stork-Hensen kranen BV te Rotterdam een baan als kraanmonteur krijgen. Tante Henny en ik zijn getrouwd en we zijn in Capelle gaan wonen.'
'Nu ben ik 71 jaar (dec.’97). Ik fiets veel, weer of geen weer, op mijn racefiets. Wel zo'n 80 kilometer per dag. Als het echt niet gaat, bij sneeuw of ijzel, zit ik thuis op de hometrainer. Het is een soort therapie voor mij.'

The message that El Pesulima has left us on Friday the 18th of October 2002 came as a shock. She passed away almost exact one year after her father, uncle Joop, has died. El was only 46 years old.
A few months previously we sat together with El and her mother aunt Henny. We visited them in a nice cottage in the calm countryside in the east of the Netherlands where they were enjoying a holiday. El was recovering from a severe illness. Although she looked fragile, she was very cheerful and optimistic. This is how we like to remember El.
