A (free) outdoor exhibition on the Lange Voorhout from 17 October (opening) to 29 November (closing day).
75 years of the UN in 75 stories
October 24 marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. 75 years of the UN in 75 stories is the common thread through the various activities that will be organized in the coming period. The celebration of 75 years of the UN is also the final piece of the national celebration of 75 years of freedom.
The 75 stories, perspectives and testimonials can be read and listened to on 75jaarvn.vrijheid.nl. The stories, including the granddaughter of co-founder Eleanor Roosevelt Nina Roosevelt-Gibson, General of the UN troops Patrick Cammaert, aid worker Arjan Erkel and writer Arnon Grunberg, discuss the basic principles of the UN such as compassion, solidarity and effort for peace and security. In addition to the online publication, the stories can be read in an appendix to NRC-Handelsblad.
