The RTV Drenthe broadcast of 2 May began in Museum de Duikelaar. Harm Dijkstra walked and talked with Jan van der Sleen. Together they strolled through Nieuwlande in search of the hider’s hole in the woods, the site where Johannes Post’s farmhouse had stood and the Yad Vashem monument in the village.

A small impression of the highly successful open days. A weekend with more than 500 visitors.
Max Leons opened the first exhibition at the Onderduikersmuseum de Duikelaar. The exhibition is entitled: Never show anyone the door. Stories of people in hiding in Nieuwlande.
On Tuesday 27th February the Duikelaar received a cheque for 3000 euro from Alderman Steenbergen. This really made us happy; half the cost of a touch screen table has now been provided, now begins the search for the other half.
