Dutch (Netherlands) War Crimes In Indonesia...What to Expect from Nazi Collaborators?
Well known executions were in the Javanese village Rawagede and in South Sulawesi. Last year, the families of the victims of Rawagede were awarded damages by the Dutch government. The Dutch state has yet to respond to the lawsuit filed against the extrajudicial killings in South Sulawesi. How many Indonesians died in both actions is not known.
The soldier had never publicized the existence of the photos. His
albums would have remained unknown if they would not have been found
recently in a dumpster in Enschede. Who had thrown them there is not known.
Photographs have been uncovered that seem to show the execution of
Indonesian civilians by Dutch soldiers in the late 1940s. The four
pictures were found in a photo album that had been donated to the
Enschede municipal archives by relatives of a man who was deployed in
the Dutch East Indies.
It is well established that Dutch troops used extreme violence during
two military offensives to stamp out the Indonesians' struggle for
independence. But it is the first time that photographs of executions
The pictures have generated renewed calls for a proper investigation into the Netherlands' colonial past in Indonesia.
