When the government of Indonesia was overthrown by the military in 1965 Anwar and his friends were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie theatre tickets on the black market to death squad leaders. They helped the army kill more than one million alleged communists ethnic Chinese and intellectuals in less than a year. As the executioner for the most notorious death squad in his city Anwar himself killed hundreds of people with his own hands.
