On Thursday 16 May they will hold a screening of the new documentary - Occupied City - directed by Steve McQueen, based on the 2019 book 'Atlas of an Occupied City: Amsterdam 1940-1945' by Bianca Stigter. This will be followed by an all-day symposium on Friday 17 May. More details, including sign-up, will be made available soon. Keep an eye out for updates.
