Museum "De bewogen jaren 1939-1950"

The museum tells the history about the Second World War in Europe and in Asia.
In the former Dutch East Indies a lot of Dutch people suffered from the Japanese occupation.
The same thing happened in more countries in Asia, for example the Burma railway, or the death railway, where a lot of British, Australian, American and Dutch suffered, alongside the Asian workers.
For the Dutch, this was going on till about 1949, the end of December 1949 Indonesia got its independence.
