The executions at De Punt

The executions at De Punt

A poster serie about a truly tragic moment in Dutch history, that has been kept silence years on end.

Background

I will address another aspect related to the residence of the Moluccan people in the Netherlands. A series of nine imprints will tell us a story of one of several striking events in the Moluccan history: a train hijacking at the Punt in 1977. Presented in four color stencil print the imprints give a detailed account of nine Moluccan youngsters who fought for their freedom, the response of the Dutch government, and the dramatic execution by marines.
