Five years ago, the first issue of The Hague History magazine was published with informative and inspiring stories about the rich history and heritage of The Hague. In recent years a loyal relationship has been formed with more and more readers. We want to celebrate this festively. On September 24, there is therefore a special anniversary conference in the spacious, historic Mesdagzaal of Pulchri Studio (Lange Voorhout 15). The theme is ‘Sand & Veen’, just like the anniversary song. Using maps, drawings, prints and photos, Paul Gerretsen, historian and former VCL rector, charts the dichotomy between residents of The Hague who live on the sand and residents of The Hague who live on the peat. Subsequently, this dichotomy is also interpreted by the former mayors Van Aartsen and Deetman.
