Stories about slavery. Not as an abstract concept, but in the form of personal and true stories. Stories from Brazil, Suriname and the Caribbean, as well as from South Africa and Asia. Stories about people who were enslaved or were slave owners, about people who benefited from the system or fought against it. They are an inextricable part of our history.

You can find more information about the physical exhibition here.
