We tend to think of the Dutch as a tolerant people, open to cultural and religious diversity. Yet in 1934 the Dutch government was forced to pass laws explicitly designed to protect Jews against attacks, just one manifestation of the anti-semitism that emerged before and during World War II. Both the Shoah and Israel have become crucial points of attachment for postwar anti-semitism in the Netherlands. This collection brings together a group of historians to show how that historical prejudice continued to resonate through the postwar years, from anti-Jewish chants among native Dutch at football matches to a variety of anti-semitic manifestations among Dutch Moroccans and Turks that reveal the transference of traditional and new anti-Jewish stereotypes among migrant communities.
