Unsilencing Palestine

During the Second World War, on 26 November 1940, professor Cleveringa of Leiden University gave a speech to protest against the dismissal of two Jewish colleagues. Every year in November, to commemorate his brave speech, Cleveringa Lectures are read by (former) Leiden academics in cities throughout the world. These meetings are connected to the themes of freedom and justice.

Next week, NVIC commemorates Cleveringa's famous speech with a series of events. Please keep in mind that the number of seats for all these events is limited. We work on a first-come, first served basis.
For more details about the series of events, please visit our webpage or Facebook.
