The Extermination of the Dutch Jews

Director: Willy Lindwer

This moving personal exploration of the scale of Dutch complicity in the deportation of 78% of Holland’s Jews during the Holocaust shatters the myth of Dutch tolerance, past and present. Director Lindwer unravels the truth about the betrayal of his aunt and uncle, who later died in Auschwitz, by a family who coveted the apartment in which they were hiding as well as the period after liberation, when the handful of Jews who returned to Holland met with an icy reception and persistent antisemitism from both the government and their fellow citizens. Together with the renowned Dutch writer Harry Mulisch, whose father who was one of the bank’s directors during the occupation, Lindwer delves into the history of the Lipmann-Rosenthal (LIRO) bank, which plundered Jewish assets during the war and used the money to fund the Nazi murder machine.
