Just two hours before he dies, Nasipudin's father prophesies that there would be chaos. But those with whom he shares this prophecy never expect that a wave of religious intolerance would sweep through the land leaving their homes in ruins. They never imagine that they would be driven from their land by their own families and neighbors, forced to live as refugees under constant fear and uncertainty.
They never expect that their families would be torn apart, dreams ruined, with despair, tragedies and lost abound. But they also never expect to find love, adventure, bliss and togetherness.
Based on the real life accounts of dozens of survivors, hundreds of hours of recordings, hundreds of pages of transcripts, documents and newspaper clippings and thousands of photographs, “This Home Was Never Mine” is a book which retraces the life of one religious minority family from Lombok, Indonesia from how people began treating them differently, systematically driven from their homes, forced to live in a strange new place, endures harassment and discrimination with no government protection, placed in an abandoned government building where they remain to this day.
