CELEBRATE! How 11 countries celebrate their freedom and independence
• December 16 2003 - June 6 2004
CELEBRATE! is a festive temporary exhibition about celebration and remembrance.
In a multi-cultural society such as the Netherlands, knowledge about other cultural backgrounds is vital. The Liberation Day national holiday in the Netherlands is related to the Second World War, but what does the Children's festival in Turkey celebrate? Why does someone in Ghana want the day off on 6 March? What do carnations mean to Portuguese people?
The CELEBRATE! exhibition answers all these questions and more. special site (in Dutch): www.verzetsmuseum.org/feest
