Documentary heritage submitted by the Netherlands, Curacao and Suriname and recommended for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 2011.

The Archive of the Middelburgsche Commercie Compagnie (MCC) ( the archives of the Trade Company of Middelburg), are both a unique and, from a global perspective, crucial collection of documentary heritage, that allows a greater understanding of the Slave trade in the so-called triangle trade from Middelburg, the capital of the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, across the Atlantic in the 18th century (1730-1800).
