the war that stayed with us
In 2020, it is 75 years since the Second World War ended in the Netherlands. With some nine kilometres of documents, the National Archives of the Netherlands houses the largest collection of war archives in the Netherlands. In the exhibition The War that Stayed with Us, the National Archives shows the aftermath of the war.
Personal histories are told in documents and photographs - about the trials of (alleged) collaborators, about the people who returned from the camps, the identification of the ones who had been killed, and how people from the Dutch East Indies experienced the post-war period.
