Vive la France

Broken Chains

Today we celebrate that July 1st, 1863, slavery was finally abolished in the Netherlands. This festival is known as Keti Koti, which means chains are broken!

However the battle against racism and prejudice continues today. Knowledge about our history is an important aspect.
