Slavery brings together ten real-life stories about people in slavery, about slaveholders, about people who freed themselves from slavery, and about people brought to the Netherlands in slavery. This exhibition centers on slavery in the Dutch colonial period spanning from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, and sheds light on the countries and regions where the Netherlands was actively involved in slavery and the slave trade.
