You missed something
Reader comment on: What They Do Not Tell You about Indonesia

Interesting article. You missed the vanished Jews of Indonesia, though. For centuries there were thriving, yet small, Jewish communities on Java and Sumatra, the Baghdadi Jews and Jews of Dutch origin. My mother was born in Surabaya pre-WW2. A few years ago the last standing synagogue, the one in Surabaya, was destroyed. I assume there must be a valid reason, for some.
