21st July 2010, Comments 0 comments


The Dutch National Archive and Sparnestad Photo – an independent photographic preservation institution in the Netherlands – are to donate a collection of post-World War Two photographs to Wikipedia Nederland in September. Wikipedia Nederland is the Dutch section of the internet encyclopaedia Wikipedia, the largest online encyclopaedia in the world.

The approximately 1000 photographs are mainly of Dutch politicians and important events in the Netherlands. They will be used to illustrate recent history articles.
