Drawings from the camps in the occupied Dutch East Indies

Drawings portraying life in the Japanese internment camps in the Dutch East Indies during World War II. A total of 140,000 civilians and servicemen were interned, most of them for at least three years. Some camp inmates kept diaries in which they wrote and drew about the events of daily life in the camps.
