Our Objectives

The objectives of the Chinese Indonesian Heritage Center Foundation (CIHC) are to preserve the heritage of the Chinese from Indonesia in the Netherlands, to promote knowledge of their history and to record this history and their migration history in particular.

The history of the Chinese from Indonesia in the Netherlands is reflected in their heritage material. We collect heritage of Chinese families, such as family archives, documents, letters, diaries, family cookbooks, and visual material such as pictures, photo albums and films. Heritage material also includes oral or written personal history.

Research, publications and information
Publications about Chinese Indonesians in the Netherlands are relatively limited. The Chinese Indonesian Heritage Center aims to promote research of their history, in particular their migration history.
Informing the public in general and the Chinese Indonesians in particular about our history is an important part of our activities.
