Netherlands: South African Embassy Organize Exhibition on ‘20 Years of Democracy’

Exhibition SA EmbassyTo commemorate South Africa’s 20 Years of Democracy, the South African Embassy in The Hague, the Netherlands in conjunction with the Institute of Social History and members of the former Dutch anti-apartheid movements have put together an exhibition to celebrate the role played by the Netherlands in bringing about democracy in South Africa.

The aim of the exhibition is to express South Africa’s thanks to the Netherlands and its people for the very important role they played in the fight against Apartheid.  The exhibition is also a tribute to the activists who were at the forefront of the struggle. It also serves as a poignant reminder that the human spirit’s yearning for freedom, justice and dignity will always surpass the voices of discontent and oppression.

The exhibition which will be formally launched on 7th May 2014 at 7:00pm will run from 1-16 May 2014 at the Atrium Den Haag and the Den Haag Gemeentehuis. During the official launching, the former leader of the Dutch anti-apartheid movement, Mrs. Conny Braam will address a group of students on the exhibition and on her experiences as a leading role-player during the anti-apartheid campaigns in the Netherlands.

The exhibition will also be exhibited at other venues in the Netherlands during the remainder of the year 2014. For more information, contact the South African Embassy, The Netherlands at:
