Publisher's Description
In 1942, Japan attacked and occupied Indonesia, which was at the time a colony of the Netherlands known as the Dutch East Indies. Their fathers and brothers imprisoned in Japanese camps, Dutch-Indonesian women were left to fend for themselves, and many young women had relationships with Japanese men for love, economic need, or against their will. Following Japans capitulation, Indonesia waged a war of independence against its former Dutch occupiers, yet thereafter many children of mixed Japanese and Dutch-Indonesian decent still found themselves stigmatised, growing up in an atmosphere of hostility and taboo. This book portrays these people today.
