26/06/2018 @ 15:00 - 18:00
On June 26th, 2018 an outstanding study on the human rights violations in Indonesia in 1965-66 will be presented in Amsterdam. The Killing Season explores one of least examined instances of mass killing and incarceration in the twentieth century—the shocking antileftist purge that gripped Indonesia in 1965-66, leaving some five hundred thousand people dead and more than a million others in detention.
The author Geoffrey B. Robinson is professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles. He will be the key-note speaker. Co-referents are Mrs Dr. Ratna Saptari from Leiden University and Prof. Asvi Warman Adam from the Indonesian Academy of Sciences, Jakarta.
This book launch is organized by Amnesty International and KITLV.
