On June 14 Julienne Straatman takes leave as vice-chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Scheepvaartmuseum (National Maritime Museum). For nine years she was intensively and devotedly committed to the metamorphosis the museum has gone through. As a personal farewell gift, she presents the Flag of Compassion –special edition nr. 3/50– to the director of the museum, Willem Bijleveld.
