Nelson Mandela – From Prisoner to President

From April, 29 to September,28 the National Museum of Resistance in Esch / Alzette will host the international exhibition "Nelson Mandela, From Prisoner to President", which was elaborated by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.

The exhibition

The 27 long years that Nelson Mandela was forced to spend in prison are partly why he is known all over the world.
Beyond any doubt he was the most famous person who illustrated the fight against the Apartheid.
He is a historic symbol of peaceful resistance for racial equality and human rights and was South Africa’s first black president (1994­‐1999) and at the same time democratically elected. Even today Nelson Mandela was one of the most respected personalities in the world. He died on the 5th of December 2013.
 
The exhibition functions as a retrospective look on Mandela’s life, the exceptional journey of a man full of hope and belief. It engages with the visitor’s perception and conscience, but at the same time it also gives the opportunity to discover the universal values of tolerance and equality. The exhibition also enables to discover a jurist synonymous with the principles of justice and equality. It promotes enthusiasm for the good cause, and encourages the masses to do the same. Mandela is considered as a ray of hope for generations of people.
 
The exhibition focuses on 6 different themes, which illustrate Nelson Mandela’s life, its difficult moments and his personal commitment for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1993.
