Introduction

Welcome on the website of “Oost-Indisch Doof”!

A comprehensive project about the decolonisation war in Indonesia.

Discover this turbulent part of history in an accessible but compelling way. A history that is much closer than you think!

Through a documentary, a traveling exhibition and an educational curriculum, “Oost-Indisch Doof” will contribute to the knowledge and negotiability of this war. We want to build bridges and connect groups in both the Netherlands and Indonesia.

A project of Hanneke Coolen-Colsters.
