Anne Buurma, a former study leader and lecturer at theater school Toneelschool Arnhem, had numerous sexual relationships with students in the 90's, eight former students and three others involved told the Volkskrant. Actress Nienke Romer and a few other students reported his behavior to the other teachers at the school, resulting in Buurma leaving the school in 2000. The former students agreed to tell their story because they feel that at the time, it was insufficiently acknowledged that Buurma's behavior was unacceptable, the Volkskrant reports.
