A friendly Asian woman holding a baby in her arms. The baby, that’s me. The woman, that’s Martha Chen. This image is so familiar to me. As long as I can remember, this picture of Martha and me has been in my photo album. On the first page, next to my birth announcement.
How bizarre to see our faces on a digital ‘wanted’-poster now. It is part of the action-plan of My Roots. Through social media, they are now trying to track down Martha. Ana will also distribute these posters in the district of Jakarta where Martha has lived. Or still lives.
