New Meetup: The Dutch Resistence Museum

Announcing a new Meetup for The Culture and Enlightenment Societie of Holland!

What: The Dutch Resistence Museum

When: October 18,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Mozes en A?ronkerk
Waterlooplein 205
Amsterdam

Greetings, all,

The poll results are in: the museum-going masses have spoken out overwhelmingly in favor of paying a visit to the Resistence Museum of Amsterdam (the choice I myself had prayed to the Gods would win out; no, I did not tamper with the voting results...). In short, a big thank-you to all who took part in the poll, even if you ended up on the losing side of history :)

What is this museum about? As you may have guessed, it presents life in the Netherlands during the five years of German control in the Second World War. Authentic objects from the era, reminders of how the invasion split the nation into two camps, those in favor of co-operation and those intent on either passive or active resistence... Of course, many preferred to not get aligned with either side and went about their usual business, war or no war; their escapist and at times not terribly boring life during the conflict is also showcased at the museum...

And thus, whether you are a hard-core democrat, politically indifferent, or a closet NSB-sympathizer who just wants to stare at some pro-German propaganda legally and in peace, you are all welcome to join us at this interesting museum on Sunday, October 18, at 2 o'clock. Let us convene at an easy-to-find location -- in front of the Moses and Aaron Church on the Waterloo square (map). From there (perhaps after briefly exploring the church, which looks mighty nice from the outside), we will make our way toward the museum, located at Plantage Kerklaan 61 (map).

Please note that the attendees will be encouraged to chip one or two euro's into the group's fund; yours truly got slapped with the Meetup bill recently and was slightly taken aback by it :)

As always, after satisfying our spiritual hunger at the museum, we will think of our more mundane hunger as well.

See the curious among you next Sunday,

Scribonius.
