Cleveringa meetings for Leiden alumni all over the world

During the Second World War, on 26 November 1940, Professor Cleveringa protested against the dismissal of two Jewish colleagues. Together with the Cleveringa Committees all around the world LUF yearly organizes a series of Cleveringa meetings around this time to commemorate this famous speech.


The lectures are given by Leiden academics in cities throughout the world. This year the speakers include amongst others Rector Magnificus & Chairman of the Executive Board C.J.J.M. Stolker (Canada), prof.dr. N.J.H. Huls ((Pretoria) and prof.dr. S. Portegies Zwart (Tokyo).

Some of the lectures are in Dutch: see the Cleveringa website (English version see flag) for the language, latest information of the locations, the summary of the lecture and how to apply. Both LUF and the local committees are looking forward to welcoming you.
