Bart Verheijen has started a crowdfunding campaign in order to record Dutch resistance songs, which were once sung against Napoleon and the French during the Napoleonic annexation of the Netherlands. The songs offer a good sense of the impact that the French annexation had on the Dutch population. They were also sung to avoid the strict French system of censorship: from 1806 to 1813, when other forms of media were no longer or not yet available, these resistance songs served as the primary means of informing and connecting the Dutch people.
By recording these songs with the help of professional musicians and providing lyrics and explanations, these songs will gain a new life. However, money is needed to achieve this goal: €3,500, for starters. Help to give these songs their deserved place in history by donating via this site! All donations are welcome. Thank you very much for your support!
