As part of our virtual festival, six story maps, focusing on Dutch cities, were created to provide a brief history of the unique Dutch-Canadian relationship. Scroll through and explore Dutch culture, and learn about the unique history that has forged the bond between Canada and the Netherlands during the Second World War. This is the story of Leeuwarden.
Scroll down through the text and photos on the right side of the map to learn more.
