From April 15 to 18, a documentary and exhibition about World War II in Haskerland - and the subsequent liberation celebrations - can be viewed for free in It Kofjelokaal at Museum Joure. Common thread in the documentary is the diary of milkman Piet Hoekstra who experienced the war as a boy and kept this diary for five years.
Haskerland during WWII
The documentary and exhibition show interesting old footage ranging from photographs, newspaper clippings and documents about local events of the time and even an original film about the liberation celebrations in Joure. The compiler is the Histoarysk Wurkferbân Skarsterlân, a working group within Museum Joure.
Every day, people from the organization will be present and happy to talk about the creation of this exhibition and the wonderful film. See the documentary and exhibition on Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16 (from 10 am - 5 pm) and on Sunday, April 17 and Monday, April 18 (from 1 - 5 pm). The film runs continuously. Admission is free (museum ticket not required).
Histoarysk Wurkferbân Skarsterlân put together the film and exhibit to mark the 2020 celebration of 75 Freedom, but due to Corona restrictions, both can only be shown now.
Entrance: Midstreet 99 or Museum Street 2.
