The oldest house of New York City – (is older than you think)

https://youtu.be/n0dhM_Doarc
New York City can trace back its roots to the free and liberal city of Amsterdam in the 17th century. The Wyckoff House is the only house in New York City that is from that period, when the Republic of the Netherlands ruled part of North America.

The house is one of the most tangible reminders of a period of American history that has largely been forgotten. New Amsterdam (1625-1664) was a colony in which people from all over the world used trade to make something better of themselves.

New Netherland Now is a project that wants to shine a light on this period of American history, which has only recently been uncovered in its true detail by historians. It shows an alternative origin story for the United States full of inspiring lessons and dire warnings.

Armed Neutrality – The Netherlands In WW1 I THE GREAT WAR Special

https://youtu.be/miGbX0LaM_w
The Netherlands were surrounded by World War 1 from 1914 onwards and their stance of armed neutrality made it difficult to manoeuvre between the Entente and the Central Powers. And while the Netherlands never joined the conflict in the end, the war took his toll on the nation.

Next time someone tells you that all illegal immigrants should be deported, show them this.

https://youtu.be/p5KMamaJPdc
It’s not so black and white at 1:37…

A series of interviews with undocumented kids, activists, policymakers, non-profit leaders, educators and members of the clergy sheds light on the innocent lives affected by a deportation of all illegal immigrants.

Though an important step was taken with a presidential order to halt the deportations of some young undocumented residents, that executive order may still be changed. What is necessary is a law that provides a path to citizenship for these young people.
