Griselda Molemans holds MA’s in Art History and Classical Archaeology from Vrije University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
She works as a documentary maker and investigative reporter and is the author of eleven non-fiction books.
Her focus on the history of the Dutch East Indies, present-day Indonesia, has resulted in various book titles, among which are Daughters of the archipelago, Heirs of the Dutch East Indies and The Forgotten Warriors.
It was during research for Daughters of the archipelago (2004) that she discovered the real extent of Japanese forced prostitution in the former Dutch colony. Combined with research in foreign archives and testimonies of victims and eye-witnesses, the evidence regarding the war crimes rape and forced prostitution in all occupied territories will be published in A lifetime of war, due out in January 2020.
