Not about art but war

Pierre Jansen about the second World War @ Arnhem

Between 1946 and 1956, Janssen worked as a journalist @ Het Vrije Volk. He then became the conservator of the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. He then tried to interest the general public for art by giving lectures. In addition, he inspired by the Louvre's curator, RenĂ© Huyghe. In 1960, when his television career was started, he started with Art Classes. For the museum he bought works by artists of the Cobra group, such as Karel Appel, Lucebert and others. The VPRO broadcasted Summer Broadcast with Pierre Jansen on February 1, 1989. As a teenager, he made WWII in Arnhem and saw the jewish children disappearing from his school, arrests and how the Arnhem police helped to carry out the Jewish Arnhemmer. He tells in an impressive way, as Pierre Jansen could do as well. LINK Pierre Jansen about the second World War (in Dutch) VPRO television  LINK His job in the past (in Dutch) AVRO television
