The name Anton de Kom, almost 75 years after his death, still appeals to the imagination. ‘Freedom fighter, resistance hero, trade unionist, activist, writer and exile’ is written on the pedestal of his statue in the Amsterdam Bijlmermeer. Yet little is known about his life. Was he a communist? Did he write We Slaves of Suriname himself? Is the book censored? How and where exactly did he die? Anton de Kom’s ideas about Suriname and slavery have been of great significance for the development of Suriname into an independent nation. That story is also told in this fascinating biography.
