The Indisch (Indo) Cultural Center in collaboration with the Indisch (Indo) Platform calls on Dutch Indonesian (Indo) people to sign a new petition about the so-called “Indo Issue” relating to WWII compensation.  67 years after the Japanese capitulation, the Dutch Government still refuses to compensate Indos for the damage they have suffered during the war.  WWII German war damage compensation already has been granted.  So far, compensation for war damages during the Japanese occupation in the former Dutch East Indies has not. In addition, Indo officials and soldiers have never been paid their overdue salaries after the war. All other Western countries with overseas territories in Asia have done just that.
All Indos (including descendants and related-by-marriage) are requested to sign the petition at this link

  1. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.

    Awesome blog!

  3. My husband Jan Bras has just received this Email today. He is very interested in signing the petition but it seems the deadline was in Nov/Dec. As he is 90 years old it is difficult for him to use the internet. He is quite agitated about the recent determination of the WUV doctors to insist that all the physical problems he has at he moment” are entirely due to old age and are .in no way related to the abuse he suffered as a POW doing hard labour on the death railway,on the Hell ships en route to Japan and work in the coal mines of Japan” The doctors refuse to believe he has had intermittent back ache from the age of 28 when he was hospitalised with acute back ache.
    He would appreciate very much if you would kindly keep him informed re. any further developments or action he should take Thank you .Annabelle on behalf of Jan Bras
