Dutch institute for war rembrance
the second world war in 100 objects


The website tweedewereldoorlog.nl (second world war online) functions as a portal but also features online exhibitions on the topic. The current exhibition tells the story of the Second World War in 100 diverse objects, brought together from the combined collections of 25 Dutch war museums. Ranging from a wool sweater that, because of the textile scarcity, was made entirely out of dog hair to a pair of round spectacles that famous Dutch resistance fighter Hannie Schaft used as a disguise during her missions. The objects, each one with its own special story, showcase the many different sides of WW II. Next to the online exhibition (to be viewed on computer, tablet and smart phone), the objects will also be on display in the internationally renowned Kunsthal Rotterdam.
