Dutch-Indonesian origin with a French last name. Lived in Surabaya during the Japanes Occupation of the Dutch East Indies. ---------------------------------------------- Tragicly, the memory still inbedded still leaves a large lump in my gut. Living in Surabaya during the Occupation by Japanese army is a tragedy. My father before he was caught tried to dismantle and destroy many of Royal Dutch Shell complexes. No one ever gave my father up as who done it, as what the Japanese were trying to find out, the person responsible for the oil complex destruction. My father was later caught, not knowing who he was. The japanese Interned him in Siam, now Thailand. The internment camp was Called Noh-Cah-Pathon. with the defeat of japan, my mother and her sons went to Siam to meet up wit my father. My father served as the European Camp Commander. An account is as vived and clear, as it happen yesturday. Try to keep this post as short as I can.
