Podcast Bob

The 6-part podcast Bob is the story of fragile 84-year-old Elisa, who recently can only talk about her old childhood sweetheart and the child she was forced to give up to a convent.


Mirke, Nele and Siona start searching for the truth. Is Bob a lifelong secret she has carried with her all her life, or the fantasy of a woman with dementia? Through exciting storytelling techniques, Elsa’s oral history story comes to life. 


Bob is a podcast by NPO Radio 1, Audiocollectief Schik and VPRO Dorst.

BIAK stories

In a cinematic installation (read more

about this exhibition at Museum Sophiahof here), Verhoeckx depicts a secret love story, based on the story of her parents, against the background of the decolonization of Dutch New Guinea. She creates a new narrative through the associative use of historical image and sound material from various archives and her parents’ private collection. 

During this afternoon we look at the use of historical image and sound material by a number of filmmakers in telling the history of the decolonization of Dutch New Guinea. What kind of material do the makers use? What are the stories behind this material? What do we actually see? And how do the filmmakers use the archival material to tell their own stories?

East Indies during the war

The war in the former Dutch East Indies has a story all of its own. Japanese expansionism, internment camps, women who were forced into prostitution as ‘comfort women’, people outside the camps and Indonesian forced labourers, the ‘romushas’.

Brabant Remembers

Seventy-five stories, one for each year we live in freedom. Together they give a good picture of the impact of World War II on society. These stories form the starting point for a Brabant-wide program and the (inter)national campaign Brabant Remembers. Together with municipalities and partners, these stories will be translated into an innovative cultural program in 2019-2020. The aim is to transfer the impact of the Second World War, to make it tangible and understandable, and thus to reach the younger generations.


With the 75 personal stories, creators, artists and policy makers will be inspired. With the goal that a broad and numerous national and international audience can experience 75 personal life-changing war stories at 75 locations in 2019 and 2020. So that people can learn from the dilemmas that ordinary people faced in unusual circumstances and see how thinking outside the box can lead to unprecedented highs and lows.


With Brabant Remembers, the stories of the past are used as a source of inspiration and starting point for choices that must be made now. The emotional impact of the past becomes palpable and the link is made to contemporary challenges.


Brabant Remembers is an initiative of the Crossroads Brabant ’40-’45 Foundation and is made possible by the Province of North Brabant and vfonds. Brabant Remembers is a partner of Europe Remembers.
