CALLS for Dutch Government to Issue Appology for Ignorance about Fate of Jews During the Holocaust

Calls for Dutch government to issue apology for ignorance about fate of Jews during Holocaust
06 January 2012
A number of Dutch politicians are calling on their government to apologize for what they call the "passive" response of the exiled Dutch government to the mass deportations of Jews by Nazi occupiers during World War II. Of the 140,000 Jews who lived in the Netherlands before the German invasion in 1940, more than 100,000 were deported and murdered in the Nazi death camps. About 30,000 Jews live in the Netherlands today, out of a total population of nearly 17 million.
