Growing up a young teen in (today) Indonesia the author recounts the Japanese invasion, the internment/imprisonment of the Dutch boys and three gruelling years trying to stay alive until the defeat of the Japanese in 1945. Tauranga resident Mr Toxopeus gifted his manuscript and illustrations to the Tauranga City Libraries in 2013. We have supplemented his story with public domain images from the Wikimedia Commons.
