AMSTERDAM.- From the 21st until the 29th of March a commemoration about the legendary Bed-in for Peace will be held in the Hilton Amsterdam with a tripartite photo exhibition 'From Holland with Peace'.

Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono stayed in the Hilton Amsterdam hotel during their honeymoon in March 1969 and stayed in bed for 7 days in room 1902, now 702 The John & Yoko Suite. During this so-called ‘Bed-in for Peace’ they spoke about peace with the international press.

Their historical action now is set in contemporary perspective in three exhibitions, all linked with the themes illustrated photography, peace and the Netherlands.

What happened in Room 702?
Is the title of a story telling exposition of 40 images that gives you an idea of the actual Bed-in happening. Dozens of photographers gathered before the hotel 40 years ago. But just a couple got the change to take their time with the married couple. Now, for the first time, this selected material is exposed to the public.
