1982 in Paramaribo, Suriname at the Fort Zeelandia,15 of my fellow country men were killed
On December 8th,1982 in Paramaribo, Suriname at the Fort Zeelandia,15 of my fellow country men were killed by the military for their belief in a better, more just and honest society.
In remembrance of their premature and unnecessary death and the death of a much beloved country I dedicate this Adagio for Strings music from Samuel Barber by the Vienna Philharmonic.
