    Samenvatting

    This article is about the increasingly uncomfortable socio-economic position of the Eurasian community in independent Indonesia. Due to the deteriorating political relations between newly independent Indonesia and the Dutch over New Guinea and other decolonisation issues since 1949, the Eurasians living become the scapegoat of the political tentions between both countries. They are torn between two worlds and whatever nationality they have (Dutch or Indonesian), they become more and more an outcast group in what they consider their motherland. Unemployed and discriminated they impoverish. They feel trapped because the Dutch government refuses to help them in coming over to the Netherlands. When the relations Dutch-Indonesian relations reach a low in 1957 the Indonesian government expels all Dutchmen. The Dutch government has no choice but to allow almost all Eurasian, regardless their nationality, to come over.
