This site is dedicated to all those who experienced this "Hell on Earth" - a women and children's internment camp set up by the Japanese in Batavia (now Jakarta, Indonesia) during WWII.

Tjideng Camp
a women and children's internment camp

The camp was one of many set up by the Japanese all over the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) to intern European civilians, mainly Dutch, as "Guests of the Emperor" during the period 1942 to 1945.

 

See Tjideng Main Page for detailed information about this camp.

 
 

The North-South axis of the camp measured 600 metres. The East-West axis was about 400 metres.
At the end of the War Tjideng housed 10,300 women and children (girls and young boys under 10 years of age only).
