Description:
The Dutch visual artist Jan Montyn is born in 1924 into a reformed family living in Oudewater. With no concept of the consequences, he becomes a member of the National Socialist Youth Organization (Hilter Youth) during the Second World War. As an eighteen-year-old youth he registers with the Kriegsmarine, gets sent to the Eastern Front and ends up in the trenches in Courland.
After the Second World War he joins the Foreign Legion, from which he escapes shortly after. Back in Holland he is treated as a collaborator; he leaves the country in 1950 when he volunteers for the Dutch army units bound for Korea. Back in Holland this is accepted as compensating for his past involvement with the German army, but he undergoes a psychological crisis. Writing an elaborate account of his experiences helps him get through.
