DE JODEN IN NEDERLAND - The Jews in the Netherlands, By the anti-Semitic propagandist Hans Graf von Monts. Netherlands,  - Anti-Semitic publication after the occupation of Holland by the Nazis in order to bring the support of the Dutch people to the extermination plan. Dutch.
The author presents the 'Jewish problem' as a long-standing problem in Europe in general and opens with quotes from various thinkers in history condemning the Jews, their behavior, their customs, and against the Jewish religion. In the Netherlands, the dress of the Jews was more similar to the way the peoples of Western Europe dressed. The main anti-Semitic claim throughout the pages of the booklet is that, although the appearance of Dutch Jews is Western, and is different from that of Eastern European Jews, they are the "same" Jews, with the same behaviors and customs. (A claim that is also reflected in the cover showing the "evolution" of the Jew from an Eastern European vagabond, to a capitalist with a cigar against the background of a map of the Netherlands). The anti-Semitic accusations that were widespread in Europe in the 1930s against the Jews appear - the Jews are the cause of the war between European countries, the control of money in all countries is in Jewish hands, the political power in all countries is in Jewish hands. The author abounds in hate speech and criticism of Jewish customs and Jewish sources, as if in the Jewish ceremonies in the synagogues in Amsterdam the Jews plot how to curse the other nations and take over them, and more. And all in order to lead the reader to the conclusion: "We must get the Jews out of our country".
In the central part, there are dozens of photographs of Jews in the Netherlands, accompanied by hate speech that all aim to clarify the message "The Netherlands does not need the Jews in it". For example, a stereotypical photo of the Jewish attorney Dr. Lazarowitz appears on which is written: "He hates the Anglo-Saxon culture, you can see that, is he suitable for us?", another photo shows Jewish butchers, and the anti-Semitic caption shows the Jewish slaughter in a distorted way: "A dark and terrible superstition... when among us a strange barbarian people openly ritually slaughters fowls, in the streets of Amsterdam on the occasion of their gloomy holidays... it means opening the artery of a chicken and letting it slowly bleed out under terrible agony. Can we tolerate such atrocities in our country?". in another photograph in which Jews are seen burning the Chametz before Passover on the streets, manipulation is shown as if the Jews disparage the bread, a photograph appears of Jews saying the 'Tashlich' by the river (a photograph taken in New York!) on Rosh Hashanah accompanied by derogatory words against the "Parasitic faith" of the Jews who believe that they throw their sins into the river, two photographs appear side by side showing the Eastern European Jew, next to the Dutch Jew, and the anti-Semitic inscription: "Jews in Warsaw, Jews in Amsterdam, remain the same, do they belong to us?", Another photograph in which poor Jews are seen in worn-out sackcloths described as "thieves", and more.
The booklet was published after the Netherlands had already been occupied by the Nazis on May 10, 1940, and it was intended to legitimize the persecution of the Jews in the eyes of the Dutch locals. It is known that most of the Dutch did not help the Jews after the occupation by the Nazis, and some of them even participated with the Nazis in the process of locating, concentrating and transporting Dutch Jews. There were Jews who felt this, and with the entry of the Nazis about 2000 of the Dutch Jews fled, and others hid. Many were sent to concentration camps in Germany and extermination camps in Eastern Europe. However, we note that despite the anti-Semitic atmosphere that the Nazis tried to create among the local population in publications such as this booklet, they did not succeed in this as they succeeded in France for example. in the Netherlands there were particularly many cases of self-sacrifice for the Jews, such as the rescue operations of the Bnei-Bli-Shem group, Johan Van Holst who worked together with Henriëtte Pimentel, Walter Susskind, Godfried Bomans, and others. According to various estimates, about 16 thousand Jews in the Netherlands were saved from the Nazis thanks to this aid. The ratio between the number of Dutch Righteous Among the Nations and the all population is immeasurably higher than in any other country. Especially the village of Nieuwlande, whose people hid Jews in an organized manner.
