He was born in Roermond, Netherlands in 1869 as the son of an ethnically German newspaper editor. He worked for the Algemeen Handelsblad from 1906 to 1909. His graphic cartoons depicted the rule of the German military in Belgium, portrayed the Germans as barbarians and Kaiser Wilhelm II as an ally of Satan.

The German government forced the Dutch government to place Raemaekers on trial for 'endangering Dutch neutrality', but a jury acquitted him."
