Memoirs of an Indo Woman
Twentieth Century Life in the East Indies and Abroad
By Marguérite Schenkhuizen
· Edited by Lizelot Stout van Balgooy

The memoirs of Marguérite Schenkhuizen provide an overview of practically the whole of the twentieth century as experienced by persons of mixed Dutch and Indonesian ancestry who lived in the former Dutch East Indies. The memoirs provide vignettes of Indonesian life, both rural and urban, as seen through the eyes of the author first as a girl, then as a wife separated from her husband during the Japanese occupation, finally as an immigrant to the United States after World War II.
