Glodok Prison

On August 27, several weeks after the Japanese surrender, the surviving skeletons from Glodok prison were lifted onto open trucks. They did not have the strength to climb onto the truck themselves. Due to a lack of transportation, even a funeral car was used. Their bones were covered with a meager shirt, kept throughout their entire time in prison for the "liberation." They were taken outside the city. There was no cheering, only silence. Friends and family awaited them with astonishment in their eyes. Emotional scenes. People asking about their loved ones with hope and fear in their voices and eyes. Then a cry of "mom" and a mother could embrace her son again in her arms. (Glodok)
