What is the story of the nation we want to tell ourselves and the world? Can we “retain and explain” national heroes and symbols or is it time to embrace a thorough rewriting of history? In this podcast Henriette takes the Netherlands as an example of a nation striving and struggling to find a new language to discuss its colonial past and the legacy of slavery.
