Pass on Freedom
Pass on Freedom Contribute now
In November 2015, the Tilburg Cobbenhagen Center started the crowdfunding campaign ‘Vrijheid doorgeven’ (passing on freedom) with no idea what to expect. Since then we have managed to collect 47% of the funds needed to finance the Digital Monument. A great result! All the donations will be used to set up a ‘digital monument’ in memory of the Second World War: a website on which the stories about freedom and resistance of students back then and now are told.
The official campaigning period ended on the 21st of January 2016. In the coming period, we will raise the remaining funds via subsidies and applications to several funds and foundations. Of course we will keep you up to date in the updates section of the crowdfunding page and on our social media platforms.
It’s still possible to make a donation to this page and to help make the digital monument a reality, your donation is always immensely appreciated!
Many thanks for all of your donations, support and commitment!

What is freedom to you? What choice will you make when your freedom and that of others is at stake? What makes a choice right? Which values determine the choices you make? These questions about freedom were a matter of life and death for Tilburg's students during the Second World War.
We want to record the dilemma's that these former students had to face in an interactive, digital monument, and connect them to stories and experiences of students today. Through the preservation and passing on of stories, we want to cultivate empathy and awareness in today's youth and society.
To realize the digital monument, we need your help!! We are asking for a donation. Every contribution is immensely appreciated! We need 15.000 Euro to make the digital monument a reality. When we manage to collect this amount of money, we can preserve and pass on the stories about courage and freedom of our community.
Will you help us write history? Then we will pass on freedom together!!
Thank you for your donation!
