An important part of Onze Plek will be the section where we tell the immigration stories - Uw Verhaal. We will tell Dutch immigration history and collect the stories of those Kiwis on Clogs who came out here in the 1950s and 1960s - and today - before that history is lost forever. We willen uw verhaal documenteren!
The NetherlanNZ Foundation has collected a number of stories in an Oral History project. Check out some of the stories collected to date by clicking here.
We have also collected stories from immigrants in the Auckland area on video.
There are many more personal tales of hardship, achievement and joy to collect! Share yours on the NetherlaNZ Foundation site by clicking here.
