Banda: The Dark Forgotten Trail

In medieval centuries, a handful of nutmegs worth more than a crate of gold in European Markets. Monopoly of the Arab and the crusade wars brought European countries in the race to find spice islands, which later sparked the clash of nations. Banda, the only place where nutmegs grew, became the place European nations fought over. The Dutch was even willing to let go of Nieuw Amsterdam (now Manhattan, New York) to cast the British forces out of the islands. In Banda, happened the first slavery and massacre in Indonesia. There too, the spirit of nationalism and multicultural identity was born.
