Raak mij aan! Touch me!

This year it is 75 years since the end of the Second World War, but its effects are still visible and felt today in the Dutch culture. 

The horrors and heroes are illustrated in countless books and films. How has WWII influenced the Dutch society and culture? And vice versa; how have books and films shaped the Dutch perception of the war?
A conversation with Lien de Jong, a Jewish war survivor and the main character of recent award-winning book The Cut Out GirlFrank van Vree, professor of History of War and director of the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Amsterdam, and David Stroband, art historian and visual art teacher at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen.

Meet the Dutch

In the series Meet the Dutch we go beyond the stereotypes to understand Dutch culture, as reflected in film, music, literature and art. Together with an interdisciplinary panel of guests, we take an in-depth look at the rich (sub)cultures of the Netherlands, and investigate how recent, lived history and culture shapes the norms of everyday life in the Netherlands today.

The series is a collaboration between Studium Generale, City Central and Forum Groningen.
