AMSTERDAM – No country has as many museums per 1,000 residents as the Netherlands, which also has a number of museums dedicated to war and resistance collections, Remembrance centres and the Netherlands Institute for War documentation. All these organizations recently jointly held a campaign to collect miscellaneous material on WWII that may be wasting away. The campaign specifically called for audiovisual material on the war in the Netherlands and the former Dutch East Indies. A series of events during the one-day campaign called attention to the central theme “Don’t throw away” (Niet weggooien!). The campaign likely will be repeated. The museums will continue to take in material.
