HistoRUN is an annual event of PPI Leiden since 2013. It is a guided-tour around the city of Leiden focusing on telling Indonesian history within the city. The audience of HistoRUN are Indonesian and international students from Leiden and other cities in the Netherlands, as well as the Indonesian diasporas in the Netherlands.
This year’s HistoRUN theme will be “Rumah Kaca: Living under Colonial Surveillance”. Rumah kaca or house of glass is a term coined by Pramoedya Ananta Toer to describe the activity of Dutch Intelligence police within the colonial era when they investigate the life of Indonesian nationalists, including the Indonesian students in the Netherlands during the 1910s-1940s.
Travel back to the 1920s! Act as a detective and discover Indonesian history in Leiden.
Let’s enjoy the semi-guided tour and get inspired by the story of Indonesian students in the past.
We also have storytelling and art & craft session for kids as well as specially designed family trail for your beloved family to enjoy Leiden on your own.
The adult program will be conducted in English and Indonesian, while the family program will be in Indonesian.
€25 (family, max. 2 adults & 2 children)
We will keep you updated! See you soon!
