Family histories are central to the upcoming Malakka Dutch Festival, a hybrid event which will take place online and on-site in Melaka from Nov 28 to Dec 4.

The Dutch Eurasian Families Of Today photo exhibition at the festival is a community effort featuring interviews, images and oral histories recorded with six participating families - Westerhout, Klass, Skelchy, Fredericks, Minjoot and De Witt clans - who will revisit and share their Dutch lineage in this project.
