I am still very excited about the fact that the Dutch government will apologise for the warcrimes the Dutch armee has committed in Rawagede in 1947.This is historical and never heard of before: clear apologies of the Dutch Government to the People of Indonesia! They have been waiting for this moment for 64 years. It will happen this Friday the 9th of December. So one more time I present you the brave women and man who dared to sue the Dutch Government and won their lawsuit.
uit: The widows of Rawagede and Mr. Saih!
This is a photo documentary blog about special women. Women who, one way or another, lost their husband. It tells how 'being a widow' changes their lives. It tells how different societies and cultures treat widows. I photographically collect their stories to create awareness of their plight.
