Kick-off 'Postbus NIOD'

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOther eventSocietal


This was the kick-off event of the campaign week 'Postbus NIOD' (NIOD's Letter box) in which we made a call to the public to donate war-related personal correspondence to the NIOD collection.

During the event, academics, historians, (amateur-)researchers, archivists, volunteers, students, etc. were present to enjoy the 'Bronnentheater' (theatre of sources) and to discuss issues related to working and dealing with historical egodocuments.
