The Anton Lucas Collection was donated to the Library in 2013. It comprises letters and documents from the Japanese occupation and the Indonesian revolution, press clippings, unpublished memoirs written by former participants, letters, and audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with 324 participants at the local level in the revolution. It also includes photographs of the people involved in these events, plus photographs and drawings of important landmarks. These items particularly pertain to “Persitiwa Tiga Daerah”, the Three Regions Affair in 1945. The Collection topics also include women in the revolution, religious movements, and agrarian and environmental protest movements that continued in later periods.
