 Tangerang
 Prison

 
 

Thousands of Dutch women were imprisoned during the Second World War: women embroidered.

They would do their utmost to be able to embroider. They stole needles from the guards, ripped off patches from sheets or clothing, and pulled thread out of coloured headscarves. They embroidered for themselves and for one another. It was something to enjoy, it gave them a sense of security and brought colour to their grey existence.

It depended very much upon prison conditions how much they could embroider, or whether they could keep their work. It had to be smuggled out, or else they finished it after the liberation. Little embroidery done by Jewish women was preserved. In the transit camp Westerbork in Drenthe there were several workplaces that used metal and wood, which was used for their own work, but very little textile was available.

Much of the preserved embroidery in this exhibition is by women who ended up in prison or in concentration camps because of their part in the Resistance. Embroidery by women in the Japanese camps in the Dutch East Indies is also shown.

Kamp Tjideng

Main Gate Tjideng

Kamp Tjideng was a prison camp for European women and children who lived in what was then the Dutch East Indies. I visited for the first time in 2005 and even though I have no experiences to call my own, in regard to camp life, the emotion that was generated during my time there was powerful. I have discussed life at Tjideng with my mother and aunts, who were interned in 1942, and have read several accounts from others. I feel I have some knowledge of Tjideng and what went on there however coming to grips with the reality of the ground upon which I walked was difficult. All I assumed, deep inside me, is that the charge of emotion I felt last time would not be repeated during this second visit. I was wrong.

THE TJIMAHI INTERNMENT CAMPS

CHINESE PERANAKAN WAS ALSO INTERNED!

Tjimahi camp was actually a former Dutch Army base, situated near Bandoeng. About 10 thousands POWs lived in Tjimahi Internment Camps. More than 510 of them were Chinese Peranakan from other cities in Java (Soerabaja, Malang, Samarang, Djepara, Magelang, Keboemen, Boendoeng, Boitenzorg, Batavia, Serang). They were interned in April 1942, and moved to Serang (September 1943 – February 1944), and finally moved to Tjimahi (February 1944 – August 1945).

According Nio Joe Lan as the civilian, and interned person, the condition of Tjimahi Camps were better than previous camps (especially for Chinese Camp), such as Boekit Doeri (Batavia) and Serang. At least, in Tjimahi Camp they were not alike prisoner in jail because they lived in a room, different other European Camps.

Within the Tjimahi Camp, they created the division of work: Medische Dienst (of Physician Service), Technisch Dienst (Technisch Service), Voedsel Dienst (Food Service), Financiën Dienst (Financial Service), Bevolking Dienst (Community service), Statistieken Dienst (statistical service for collecting property from the dead person).

The camps became more and more overcrowded in the course of the war. The width of a sleeping place was reduced from an average of 1.35 metres to 50 centimetres. Little light or fresh air entered the stuffy barracks. One’s sleeping place was one’s home. Everything was done here. The inmates ate, drank, slept, read, received their guests and tinkered in their sleeping place. Their few belongings stood, hung or lay around the bed. There was no privacy in a dwelling like this.

Location:
This camp was in the eastern city of Tjimahi, directly south of the line. The camp was located in the barracks of the emergency barracks for indigenous milic iens. The bamboo huts, total about 27 units, had a cement floor, most had no windows, but over the full length of an open air strip directly beneath the roof, at the ends was a big door. The camp was a sinister impression: gray barracks around a large square, no tree. The camp was surrounded by a bamboo fence (hence the name was Bamboo Camp).
