Today, Thursday 29 October, the University of Groningen celebrates 40 years of cooperation with the Carl-von-Ossietzky Universität in Oldenburg, Germany.

The Special Collections department made a virtual exhibition about 400 (!) years of Groningen and Oldenburg. Pivotal is a conflict between Ubbo Emmius, the first rector of the academy of Groningen, and the Oldenburg court.

The story is illustrated with unique materials from our Special Collections, such as a booklet with handwritten notes by Ubbo Emmius himself, original letters and exquisite maps of East Friesland and Oldenburg.
