If you want to learn about Dutch history, you can read the 50 canonical articles at Canon van Nederland. These articles act as ‘windows to the past’ and were developed as the basis for the history curriculum in schools.
Each window tells the story of one canonical event in the history of the Netherlands from prehistory to the modern day. Topics include Charlemagne, the Hanseatic league, Rembrandt, slavery and Anne Frank. Each article takes one landmark person, artifact or topic and shows how that story relates to the bigger picture.
