If someone gave you €100.- and told you he killed someone for it, would you accept it? If your country’s wealth was acquired by killing millions of people, would you want to give it back? Or would you like to know why?
This graphic novel is about the high tides of the Dutch VOC, but told from the perspective of the Spice Islanders. It ain’t pretty and it ain’t the truth, because reality is far worse. Someone’s legacy is always someone else’s heritage.
A very impressive story. Not suitable for reading aloud as a bed time story for my children :), but certainly one to share.
My husband put his heart and soul in this story and worked on it for 2 years. The end result is stunning and with a beautiful message for everyone.
The images are stunning. When I started reading, I couldn't stop. I am anxious to read part 2 and 3.
