Overview blogs campaign week 'Postbus NIOD'

Published on 13 June 2023
Since 2020, in the project ‘First-hand Accounts of War: War Letters (1935-1950) from NIOD Digitised', NIOD has been working to digitise the special collection of handwritten letters dating from the period before, during and after the German occupation of the Netherlands and the Indonesian War of Independence. This project involves more than 160,000 documents, many of them personal, which have been gathered at NIOD since the liberation in 1945. During the ‘Postbus NIOD’ campaign week (31 March-7 April 2023), NIOD appealed to anyone who has personal war correspondence languishing at home to donate it to NIOD.
