Poster Boekenweek 2013

This year the Dutch book week from 16th till 24th of March will be dedicated to the Golden Age of Dutch history and the dark pages of history.
The past of Holland has glorious periods, but almost as many drawbacks. It is a history of heroic deeds and betrayal, of glorious events and disaster. But also a dark page of slavery and its remnants. This year is also the celebration of 150 years of breaking the chains of slavery.

BookIsh Plaza has compiled some of her books regarding slavery, colonization and how nowadays people deals with the remants of this dark period of history.

Purchase the books at BookIsh Plaza.
