the history lesson you never had

After his masterpiece Congo, cultural historian David Van Reybrouck is back. He investigated the Indonesian independence for over five years and gathered his findings in his monumental book Revolusi. David is surprised about our lack of historical knowledge. Why do we know so little about the dark pages of our history? And why is it so important to know about our colonial history? He discusses this with the director of content of the Museum van Wereldculturen Wayne Modest. Prepare for a lesson you never had before!
