2015-08-03

The Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice (IRSJ) has arranged for the popular travelling exhibition, ‘Signs of Solidarity: The Dutch Against Apartheid’, to be shown on the Bloemfontein Campus. In support of the University of the Free State’s Human Project, the IRSJ strives to stimulate reflections into South Africa’s past, and to establish a conversation about the significance of our history by bringing this exhibition to the campus.

Details of the event
Date: 4 August 2015
Time: 14:00 – 15:30
Place: UFS Sasol Library foyer, Bloemfontein Campus
RSVP: Eddie de Wet at DeWetE@ufs.ac.za

The exhibition will be opened by the Vice Chancellor and Rector of the UFS, Professor Jonathan Jansen and the Ambassador to South Africa from the Royal Kingdom of the Netherlands, Marisa Gerards.

‘Signs of Solidarity: The Dutch Against Apartheid’ is a moving testimony to the massive scale of civil support the Netherlands has shown to South Africa’s liberation struggle. Their support grew to such an extent that it not only became a national agenda, but also one of the greatest protest movements the Netherlands has ever known.
