I am glad they were not!
They were born on Java from a Japanese father and a Surabayan Kraton mother. Enemies of Holland in WW2 because they were considered Japanese, sent to an internment camp in Australia (with other Japanese, Germans and Italians). After the war they were sent ‘back’ to Japan. Postwar Japan wasn’t a happy place, after a few years almost everybody went back to Java (which also wasn’t a great place having a Japanese name) except for my great grandfather and Haruko. My mom went to Japanese primary school for a few years when they lived in Japan.
