Why Jan (73) from Deventer makes the Japanese news: ‘It is so bad what happened there’ | Deventer

Jan Verstraaten’s father was in his 20s when he ended up in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. He never talked to his son about the appalling conditions there. Jan (73) couldn’t let it go. Now that he is slowly going blind, he has moved to Asia. About a forgotten piece of World War II history. “He has experienced all kinds of trouble here.”
