Had to post this since it seems many Dutch livleakers know jack shit about their own country. Probably the reason the Netherlands doesnt even make the top 5 in Most educated Countries in the World.
Perhaps if they spent less time trying to find reasons to talk shit about the USA they could study their own history so an American didnt have to educate them.
The history of the Netherlands from 1939 to 1945 covers the events in the Netherlands that took place under the German occupation that started on May 10, 1940 with the Battle of the Netherlands. The Netherlands hoped to stay neutral when World War II broke out in 1939 but this hope was ended when Nazi Germany invaded in May 1940. On May 15, 1940, one day after the Bombing of Rotterdam the Dutch forces capitulated. Subsequently the Dutch government and the royal family went into exile in London.
The occupying forces were supported by a minority of the Dutch.
Active resistance was carried out by a small minority which grew in the
course of the four-and-a-half years of the occupation. The Germans
deported the majority of the country's Jews to concentration camps, with the assistance of the Dutch police and civil service: the Netherlands had one of the highest levels of collaboration with the Nazis during the Holocaust. 75% of the country’s Jewish population were exterminated, a much higher percentage than countries like Belgium and France.
Most of the south of the country was liberated in the second half of
1944. The rest, especially the west of the country, suffered from the Hunger Winter. On May 5, 1945, the whole country was liberated by the Allied Forces.
