were sent to their deaths.

In February 1941

the Nazis rounded up

Jews in Amsterdam

and sent them

to concentration camps

(...).

 

Many Dutch people

who were not Jewish

were outraged and responded

by going on strike

in several cities.

The death rate

among the Jewish population

in the Netherlands

was higher than anywhere

in occupied western Europe.

 

About 140,000 Jews

lived in the country

before the Nazi occupation.

 

Of those,

107,000 were deported

and only 5,200 survived.

 

It is estimated

that some 24,000 Jews

went into hiding,

of whom 8,000 were hunted down

or betrayed.

Despite being neutral,

the Netherlands in World War II

was invaded by Nazi Germany

on 10 May 1940,

as part of Fall Gelb.

 

On 15 May 1940,

one day after

the bombing of Rotterdam,

the Dutch forces surrendered.

 

The Dutch government

and the royal family

saved themselves

by going to London.

 

Princess Juliana

and her children moved on

to Canada for additional safety.

 

The Netherlands was placed

under German occupation,

which endured in some areas

until the German surrender

in May 1945.

 

Active resistance

was carried out by a minority,

which grew in the course

of the occupation.

 

The occupiers deported

the majority of the country's Jews

to Nazi concentration camps.
