DUTCH COURAGE: WHAT NOW FOR HOLLAND'S JEWS?
Discover the Netherlands and test the waters in a country that has survived a divisive election campaign. Take a stroll around Amsterdam’s rich and distinctive Jewish history and culture, and look at a remarkable letter-writing project that puts elderly Dutch Holocaust survivors in touch with young Muslims. Elsewhere, Lord Dubs and MP Mike Freer debate the issue of refugee children; we mark the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War with an exploration of the photographs, film and music created at the time, and we speak to those behind a new show about the artist Charlotte Salomon.
