The Truus Wijsmuller Archive

Already during the filming of Truus' Children, and even more during the lengthy process of editing the almost 90 hours (!) of film the directors of the film realized that with all the interviews, the documents they were able to collect during the research, the unique archive images that they have found, and the letters and documents that have been provided to them by the 'Children of Truus', this was such a special material with great historical value in their hands that this should not be lost.

This is how the idea was born for the Truus Wijsmuller Archives , a digital platform that should be accessible to as many people as possible all over the world: pupils, students, teachers, scientists, and researchers at home and abroad. By setting up this archive, important historical material will be stored in an orderly manner and made accessible for everyone - certainly also for younger interested parties - and thus preserved forever.
