In the Service of Peace


Dramatic floods caused by the Rhine devastated great parts of Liechtenstein in 1927. 710 volunteers from 25 countries carried out the flood relief project in 1928. One of those volunteers was Haakon Nederland from Denmark. His letters, report and photos are being shown beside others. They offer extraordinary impressions of a unique voluntary project.
