From 12 April the following exhibitions will be shown: Never show anyone the door Stories of hiding in Nieuwlande.

This exhibition came to be realised due to cooperation between the museum and Memorial Centre Camp Westerbork. The stories are told from the points of view of those in hiding, their hosts and their couriers.

The Schonewille collection.

The private collection of Jo Schonewille, Nieuwlande, the village that maintained silence, forms the basis of the developing museum De Duikelaar. Part of the collection, including cartoons by Herman, will be on show. Herman, the alias of Lou Gans, made the cartoons during his stay under the floor at the formerly reformed church in Nieuwlande.

Since August 2018 there has been a new segment on display with the title Surrender and Resistance.Seven old posters represent the surrender after the German attack. By contrast is the model of Johannes Post’s farmhouse, where the resistance in Nieuwlande started and where people came who were important for Johannes Post and his resistance work.
