History of the Red Cross

A recent history of the Dutch Red Cross during WWII, for which Keetie Sluyterman of our department was on the supervisory committee, was published on the 1st of November. The conclusions were stark; the Red Cross in the Netherlands did next to nothing for Dutch Jews. To read more on the reason the book was commissioned (by the Red Cross) see here and for the speech given by Inge Braakman on receiving the research results on behalf of the Red Cross see here.

The book, by Regina Gruter, can be found here.
