The war that took place in Ambon, Indonesia (1999) was not yet fully over. Thousands of children under the age of 10-15 years were forced into conflict. Not a few children involved in the war eventually grew up without assistance. Growing up struggling with post-conflict trauma and seeking peace in their own way. Now they have become adults without having any education or training. Some of them rely on violence to earn money. 20 years after the Ambon conflict broke out, how did the former combatants who used to be involved survive and get out of extremism?
