International conference: The Children Trains and Beyond

Thursday 6 & Friday 7 February
The Neo-Calvinism Research Institute (Theological University Kampen), Broederweg 15, Kampen

On 6 and 7 February, the Neo-Calvinism Research Institute and the Department of Dutch Studies of the Eötvös Loránd University Budapest (ELTE) organize, with support from the Embassy of Hungary in The Hague, the conference “The children trains and beyond – Cultural, religious and political contacts between Hungary and the Low Countries in the Interwar Period”.

During the interwar period intensive cultural, religious, political and personal contacts existed between Hungary, the Netherlands and Belgium. Many of these contacts can be traced back to humanitarian actions after the First World War, especially the so-called children trains. The conference is a centenary commemoration where recent research results on this theme will be presented and personal experiences can be shared. Registration is now opened.
