MasterPeace Cartoons

Last Thursday, May 5th, was Liberation Day in the Netherlands. On this day, the people in the Netherlands celebrate the fact that they live in peace and freedom since 1945 (end of Second World War). They also commemorate the lack of peace and freedom elsewhere in the world. Every year a million people visit Liberation Festivals to rejoice and reflect on peace and war.

In April we ran a special project in our newsroom for MasterPeace, asking cartoonists from around the world to give us their vision on peace. From all the submissions, MasterPeace selected 14 cartoons to be displayed at five Liberation Festivals in Amsterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, Utrecht and Wageningen. Here are some pictures to give you an impression:
