Belgium and the Holocaust: Jews, Belgians, Germans

Dan Mikhman
Berghahn Books, 1998 - 593 páginas
Historical research on the Holocaust has not dealt evenly with all the persecuted Jewish communities. The fate of the Jews in Belgium has been relatively neglected.

Since what little has been published or written is in either Dutch or French, the material has been largely unavailable to readers outside West Europe. This volume is the first of its kind in English. A variety of researchers from Belgium, France, and Israel discuss issues such as the make-up of Belgian Jewry before the war; Nazi anti-Jewish policies; the attitudes of various segements of Belgian society to the Jews before, during, and after the occupation; Jewish strategies and activities for survival; the problematics of reconstruction in the aftermath of the war; the contacts with the Yishuv in Palestine; emigration to the United States; and the policies of postwar commemoration.
