75 YEARS OF LIBERATION2 June 2020 - 6 September 2020
In 2020 it will be 75 years since the liberation of the Netherlands. For this anniversary, the Frisian Museum, in collaboration with Tresoar, is exhibiting archive footage of the Second World War and the liberation of the province of Friesland. This photo exhibition characterizes wartime in Friesland and is part of the national project WO2 in 100 photographs by the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation (NIOD).
The photographs are interspersed with amateur films that the Frisian Film Archive selected especially for this exhibition. The films are often shot in secret and provide a penetrating picture of the war, the resistance and the persecution of the Jews in Friesland. The exhibition also includes a meeting place where contemporary projects are given a place and where there is room to talk to witnesses, experts and each other.
