Call for stories written in English


At this moment the Indies Commemoration Centre doesn’t show yet personal stories written in the English language. You are more than welcome to offer us stories about the Japanese occupation, the bersiap period or the colonial war. Maybe you have stories about the repatriation to the Netherlands, your reception here and your early experiences in the Netherlands, or about your life as an immigrant abroad. The Indies Commemoration Center would like to collect these personal stories.

Are you interested to send us a personal story, please contact us at
