Presented by Jan de Koning, Minister for Social Affairs and Employment

Thanks in no small measure to the work of many former members of the Resistance, the February 1941 Foundation has made a very important contribution to raising awareness of the values that too few Dutch people put into practice from 1940-1945. It has also continued to draw attention to the courage and indomitability of the fighters for justice and to the suffering endured by so many fellow human beings as a result of the brutality of war.

By involving young people intensively in the past, the February 1941 Foundation helps to promote the recognition of injustice and the prevention of new violations of human rights.

February 1941 Foundation: educational, committed, respectful, consciousness-raising
