We Keep On Keepin' On. Oma Srie's Workers' Story

Episode 1 - We Keep On Keepin' On. Oma Srie's Workers' Story:

The Vijzelstraat in Amsterdam, the heart of the city. The building that now houses the City Archive used to be the Dutch Trading Company. That organization transported thousands of Javanese, Chinese, and Hindustani people to Suriname to fill the shortage of cheap labor that arose after the abolition of slavery in 1863.
