For a new documentary series public broadcaster Omroep MAX in The Netherlands is looking for Dutch and Dutch-Indonesian families who left in the 50s for the USA. We are seeking personal stories, photos and videos of the first generation of Dutch and Dutch-Indonesian emigrants. Why did you leave the Netherlands? What was your life like after you left the Netherlands? What were your moments of bliss and what were your disappointments and difficult moments? Do you still feel homesick? Do you want to go back to the Netherlands or is the US your home now?
Do you want to share your personal story with us on television, or do you have relatives that left in the 50s we can get in contact with?
Please contact editor and researcher Carmen Fernald at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a personal message through Facebook and I will forward the message to Carmen.
Would you prefer to send us a motivation letter? Our postal address is:

Be aware that by sending a letter or email you automatically agree with the terms and conditions of Omroep MAX that you will grant us your consent that we can collect your personal data for our use only.
