Have you visited Indonesia since being interned? If you have, did you go out of your way to see what the areas that used to be internment camps turned into?

That must have been a confusing feeling. To be honest, if I were you I probably wouldn't have the courage to return. You've lived with amazing courage. Thank you so much for taking the time to relay your experiences to strangers on the Internet!

Another random question: I remember a friend's grandmother who was indonesian tell her that as soon as the Japanese invaded, they were all forced to learn Japanese in school and all Dutch lessons stopped. Did they force you to learn Japanese in the camps? Or was it all focused on heavily working the interned?
