West-Papua was promised independance once. But Mr Luns and president Soekarno thought otherwise. Dirk Vlasblom, NRC correspondent in Jakarta, has written the first extensive history of West-Papua. He tried to write as much as possible from the Papuan's point of view . The exiled Papuan headmen Viktor Kaisiëpo and Zacharias Sawor have fought for years for a West-Papuan future. A discussion - illustrated with historical film archives - chaired by journalist Paul van der Gaag.
