About Truus Dekker

Truus Dekker was a Dutch actress who made a name for herself in the 1940s and 1950s. Born on May 13, 1922, in Amsterdam, Dekker began her career in theater before transitioning to film.

She made her film debut in 1940 in the Dutch film "De Spooktrein" and went on to appear in several other films throughout the decade. However, it was her role in the 1951 film "De Dijk is Dicht" that brought her critical acclaim and established her as a leading actress in the Netherlands.

Dekker continued to act in films throughout the 1950s, but her career slowed down in the 1960s. She made her final film appearance in 1972 in the Dutch film "De Inbreker."

Despite her relatively short career, Dekker left a lasting impression on Dutch cinema. Her performances were praised for their naturalism and emotional depth, and she was considered one of the most talented actresses of her generation.

Dekker passed away on November 2, 2015, at the age of 93. Her legacy lives on in the films she appeared in and the impact she had on Dutch cinema.
