Hugo Wilmar Foundation
Hugo Wilmar Foundation was founded with the intention to make the family archive, consisting of hundreds of photos, a few films and dozens of letters, public. In addition, we have set ourselves the goal to promote the cultural-historical heritage of H.A, Wilmar, part of which is also stored at the various national archives. We do this by initiating projects, and creating partnerships with the various national and international archives. This website is made possible by worcflow visual marketing
