'Foute beelden horen in een museum en niet op straat'

Wat moeten we in Nederland met al die foute beelden uit/over het verleden? Onze eigen Ethan Mark is gisteren uitgenodigd op Radio Een Dit is de Dag om die vraag te beantwoorden.

Historicus Ethan Mark vindt dat standbeelden van 'foute' helden te veel een eerbetoon zijn.
