On the night before 6 December, children all over the country left their shoes out for Sinterklaas to fill with goodies. What did they have on their wish lists? And more importantly: have they been good? Enjoy some of the Sinterklaas traditions from the 1950s and 60s shown in this clip.
Step by step, we are opening up the Flemish archive to the public. Our first public collection, ‘News of the Great War’, is the biggest online database of press material from the First World War. Browse through war newspapers, trench papers and even censored press.
An image says more than a thousand words. Through our platform ‘the Archive for Education’ teachers can find audiovisual classroom material in one place. It has never been so fun and easy to enrich your lessons with image and sound. Exclusively accessible to teachers and trainee teachers.
Not all Flemish film heritage was filmed in our own region. The film collection from the White Fathers, for example, offers a unique view of the history of Congo, Rwanda and Burundi. And it’s currently being digitised in London.
