This 25th issue of On the Waterfront is the last one to be co-edited by Jan Lucassen. The Friends owe Jan a lot – indeed, their very existence. Together with Mieke IJzermans, he helped found our association in 1998; and together with Mieke, he launched this journal in 2001. Jan chaired all meetings of the Friends, including those of its Board, until his retirement from the Institute in July 2012. While we are unwilling to say farewell, we are pleased to express our deepest gratitude here!

On the Friends’ Day held on June 11, 2012, Frank de Jong screened Toegemuurde Verten (Sealed Horizons), a propaganda film produced for the Dutch Christian Industry and Transport Workers’ Union in 1936. The only existing copy was cleaned and digitized with financial aid from the Friends. A report on the meeting appears in the pdf version of this issue.

In our next issue we will review the exhibition Together and Alone: Life in Russia from 1900 till now, which is featured at the Drents Museum in Assen from November 17, 2012 to June 9, 2013, as part of Work, Income and the State in Russia and the Soviet Union, 1900-2000. This project was funded by the Friends and supervised by the exhibition’s curator Gijs Kessler.
