Netherlands: Controversial Third Reich exhibition to open in Dutch museum

Netherlands, 's-Hertogenbosch
September 4, 2019 at 21:39 GMT -00:00 · Published

The controversial exhibition, which is claimed to be "the first major retrospective of design of the Third Reich" is about to open in the Dutch city of 's-Hertogenbosch.

The retrospective, that will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the town and its surrounding areas, received mixed reactions.

"I understand the worries and I have had much myself as well when I was working on this exhibition," explained Thomas van den Heuvel, manager of the project.

"But at the same time, I think it's important to show it in its context. We're starting with the terror of the concentration camps, we're ending with the holocaust, so we are putting that into context," he explained.

The exhibition puts on display a large selection of objects, including flags, posters, statues, furniture pieces and magazines.

Van den Heuvel also mentioned the Free Corps helmet with a swastika that they borrowed from the German Historical Museum with "a little bit of negotiation."

The 'Design of the Third Reich' exhibition will be open for visitors from September 8 , 2019 until January 19, 2020.
