Nelson Mandela | 20 years freedom anniversary

What happened 20 years ago on 11 February 1990? Nelson Mandela, turning 92 in July, tasted freedom after 27 years spent in prison in his own country, South Africa. 

To mark this day,  ZAM magazine is organising an event @ 19:30 in the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mr Mandela release from prison, which includes a mini exhibition called 'Free Nelson Mandela'.

I would've liked to attend - pity that I'm rather far from A'dam. I've been watching the film "Mrs. Mandela" on the BBC, it was very good.
Thanks for sharing this information!

I wish I could have attended myself but would have been too late.
