Reenactors stage the famous Battle of Surabaya on the streets of the East Java city on Sunday (05/11). During the original battle in November 1945, poorly armed guerilla fighters held out against the much bigger force of British and British Indian troops for more than three weeks — the heaviest single battle of the Indonesian revolution. Nov. 1o is now celebrated as Heroes' Day in Indonesia. (Antara Photo/Didik Suhartono)
