Photo exhibition Past and Present of Our Eternal Heroes

  • Date: 24 October 9:00 - 16:00
  • Location: Atrium City Hall 

The photo exhibition Past and Present of Our Eternal Heroes can be seen in the Atrium of the City Hall from October 10 to October 24. The exhibition is organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Korean in the Netherlands and De Vereniging Oud Korea Strijders (V.O.K.S.) and is made possible by the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs. Tis photo exhibition commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Korean War armistice. 

It also offers an opportunity to see these brave soldiers’ traces throughout the war - to remind ourselves that they were not just young soldiers, but heroes who fought tirelessly to secure the freedom of a country, the Republic of Korea.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Korean War armistice. The Netherlands dispatched a total of 5,322 soldiers to the Korean War and they fought together for Korea’s freedom and peace. Thanks to their noble sacrifices, the Republic of Korea, also known as South Korea, was able to protect its freedom, regain peace, and achieve remarkable growth.

In this exhibition, visitors are able to see various aspects of the Netherlands’ participation in the Korean War and view the past and present of the “Eternal Heroes” who defended Korea. A video of interviews with veterans from 22 countries that participated in the Korean War, including the Netherlands, is also on display.

The embassy hopes that everyone will be able to learn more about the Korean War and its veterans through this exhibition.
