Live talk by Ruth Kronenburg (Free Press Unlimited)
Sunday September 20 from 2 pm to 2.30 pm (30 minutes + questions). An episode from the documentary series De Pen & Het Zwaard, in which journalist Fidan Ekiz goes in search of freedom of the press in Myanmar (45 minutes), is then shown. Free for visitors to Oranjehotel (excl. Entrance). Reservation recommended.
During the Second World War, people were held in the Oranjehotel who had been arrested for illegal press or because they said what they wanted at a time when this was not possible. Something from the past? Freedom of the press and reliable information are still issues to be fought for. In her talk, Ruth Kronenburg, director of Free Press Unlimited, shows how topical the importance of free press is.
