In an envelope with hundreds of snap shots of one family from the province of Drenthe - that had arrived at the studio this week - some remarkable images showed up. Like this one: a war scene from the East Indies (Indonesia). In 1945, just after the Netherlands was liberated, the country was at war again. Thousands of Dutch conscript and professional solders were sent to the colony to suppress the call for independence. The war in Indonesia that was sold to the people in the Netherlands as 'politionele acties' (police actions) is an open wound in Dutch history.
