Domela | Pat van Boeckel/Domela Nieuwenhuis

In 2020 it is a hundred years ago that Domela Nieuwenhuis (1846-1920) died. In his time, Domela – as a pastor, freethinker, socialist, anarchist, anti-militarist, but above all as a fighter against social injustice – was famous and notorious. They called him ‘us ferlosser’, our savior. It was him who united the poor poor peat cutters…. Poetry film by Pat van Boeckel.
