Stichting Hugo Wilmar

Stichting Hugo Wilmar was established to make public the family archive, consisting of hundreds of photographs, several films and dozens of letters. We have also set ourselves the goal of promoting the cultural-historical heritage of H.A. Wilmar, which is housed at the various archives. We do this through projects, promotion and partnerships with the various national and international archives. This website was made possible in part by worcflow visual marketing.
