Geschiedenis: eerste hulp bij ongelukken
Tue 30 May ’2320:30Philipszaal
In this theater lecture, Beatrice de Graaf shows how earlier societies overcame major problems. Especially in times when everything seems unreasonable, distraught and hopeless, new ideas and groundbreaking innovations arise. In an adventurous journey through major crises from Napoleon to the present, De Graaf shows how lesser known history can inspire us to great deeds and faith in the future. How did the Netherlands overcome the cholera pandemic? How did hopeless wars lead to long periods of peace? And why are we now better protected as a result of previous floods? In this evening full of gripping stories and colorful examples, historian Beatrice De Graaf shows which history lessons can be our first aid in the event of misfortunes.
