The International Institute for Holocaust Research

When Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands on May 10, 1940, there were around 140,000 Jews in the country (native and migrants). The German occupation authorities established a civil administration and introduced anti-Jewish measures incrementally. Pursuant to the Wannsee conference and the decision to implement the Final Solution policy in occupied Western Europe, mass transports of Jews from the Netherlands to the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp began in July 1942.
