Commemoration of the 4th anniversary of the unveiling of the TGM Memorial in Rotterdam

On 5 November, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in The Hague and the Czech Center in Rotterdam organized a commemoration of  the 4th anniversary of the unveiling of the Tomáš Garrigue  Masaryk's Memorial in Rotterdam.


 

The Czech Ambassador to the Netherlands Ms Kateřina Sequensová recalled the importance of  Tomáš Garrigue  Masaryk (TGM) and  expressed gratitude to those who contributed to the creation of the memorial. Ambassador Sequensová and Deputy Ambassador of the Slovak Republic Dana Hůlková  paid tribute to the first  president of Czechoslovakia.

The memorial is placed in the center of Rotterdam  near the location where TGM met in October 1914 with British historian and journalist Robert Seton-Watson, to whom he outlined his vision of  future independent Czechoslovakia. Mr Jan Henneman and Mr  Pieter Goedhart, who came with the idea of ​​creating a memorial, presented details of this historical meeting and further information on TGM's connections with the Netherlands.

The event is part of a series of activities through which the Embassy of the Czech Republic commemorates the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Czechoslovakia and the Netherlands.
