Book description
Setting out the processes that allowed the Nazis to perpetuate mass murder, this detailed history documents the destruction of Dutch Jewry, from isolation to deportation, and ultimately, extermination. 

Focusing on a country often forgotten in Holocaust histories, this comprehensive account describes how 110,000 Jews were deported from the Netherlands to concentration camps in 1940 but less than 6000 returned at the end of the war. 

Utilising 15 years of research and documents from the Netherlands State Institute for War Documentation, the incremental demands of Jewish citizens are analysed - starting with forced registry and ending at death in concentration camps - while demonstrating how this slow progression led the Germans involved to accept these atrocities. 

Graphically recounting stories of persecution, going into hiding, and life in the transit camps, it conveys the despair experienced as families and lives were destroyed, while showing how these stories fit into a wider global picture. 

Ashes In the Wind: The Destruction of Dutch Jewry by Dr Jacob Presser is a first English edition published in 1968 by Souvenir Press, London.
