Zuid-Afrika Huis

Since its foundation in 1881, the library of the South Africa House is reputed to be the leading source of information on South Africa in the Netherlands. In addition to more than 30,000 books and magazines, the collection has an extensive photo archive and a large number of black and white slides from the first half of the 20th century. This unique photographic material, consisting of both Dutch and South African photos, illustrates the important role South African ‘Boers’ played for a long time in Dutch nationalism. The library is managed by the South Africa Institute (SAI), which is associated with the Netherlands-South African Society (NZAV).
