The main activity of the foundation is to translate recent publications from Dutch and Indonesian media that refer to the colonial past and the Indonesian independence war (1945-1949.)

We believe that – besides the large distance and the difference in culture – also the language is a barrier that stands in the way of mutual understanding. For the Dutch audience it may be interesting to read how Indonesian articles talk about the colonial past including the Dutch military actions. And vice versa; Indonesians may be surprised to learn about the ideas and sentiments that live among Dutch people when it comes this particular history.

Histori Bersama was officially founded in September 20th, 2016 in Rotterdam.
