From Saturday 9 May, Trouw will publish bi-weekly interviews and photos of my project `Children of the War`. This Friday, July 3, part five: an article with Emaila Iragiliati Sukarni-Lukman, the daughter of Sukani Kartodiwirjo, independence-fighter. With others he made Soekarno and Hatta proclaim independence of Indonesia the 17th of August 1945. Check here a short video.
For this project I have searched for descendants of protagonists of the decolonisation war in Indonesia (1945 - 1949), both in the Netherlands and in Indonesia.
