Abstract

Remembering is a social action that cannot be separated from the context of the identity of both individuals and groups with the same background. Interpretation and reinterpretation of self-image, individual and group identities emerge from fragments of memories regarding events that occurred in the past. This study aims to show the representation of self-identity as a Moluccan in the collective memory of the first and second generation Moluccan women in the Netherlands. This research uses descriptive analytical method and literature study using Halbwachs (1980) approach, regarding the memory of social actions which are not only personal in nature but adhere to its collective and dynamic nature as well as a basic form of identity. The results of this study show that there are three elements of collective memory presented by the first and second generations of Moluccan women, namely interpreting the first generation as a rigid and hard generation, the Moluccan camps in the Netherlands are considered as the 'space' of Maluku as well as Maluku's inferiority in front of the Netherlands, Moluccan women are fighters and mediators in the family. This study also shows how the two generations interpret their identity: the first generation feels like Moluccans, while the second generation is in chaos of dual identity: Moluccan’s and Netherlands
