In stock

Product description

This booklet describes what happened in Dordrecht in the run-up to World War II, during the war and after 1945. Of course, it begins with the rise of Hitler, the increasing threat of war and how Dordrecht tried to prepare for war in the best possible way. Virtually all aspects of the war, focused on Dordrecht, are discussed: the beginning of the occupation, the Germans in the city, the changes in daily life and the persecution of the Jews, but also the resistance and the hunger winter. Finally, the Liberation and what came after, the purges and the reconstruction.
