Abstract:

The isolation of the Dutch Jews began with minor measures in 1940. Most Dutch officials and teachers signed the declaration of Aryan origins imposed in September 1940, although some university professors, students, and Church bodies protested. In February 1941, Dutch and German Nazis attacked the Jews of Amsterdam - the Jewish quarter was sealed off and raids and arrests were carried out resulting in a protest strike by the Dutch population. Nevertheless, exclusion of Jews from social, cultural, and economic life continued. From January 1942, male Jews were deported to labor camps and provincial Jews were transferred to Amsterdam. Describes the process of deportations to concentration camps between July 1942-September 1943, focusing on the equivocal role played by the Jewish Council and the lack of organized opposition from Dutch officials, the Churches, and the government-in-exile in London. Surveys the life of Jews in hiding, participation in the resistance, and the fate of the deportees in Westerbork and in the extermination camps.
