70 years Liberation

On May 5, the Netherlands celebrates 70 years of liberation and freedom. Prior to that celebration, on May 4, all over the country people come together at one of the many war memorials to commemorate the victims of the war years 1940-1945. 

This project is made possible in part thanks to the generous support of the BankGiro Loterij. Its financial contribution helps to enhance the public visibility of Het Nieuwe Instituut's collection.
