Title
Netherlands Institute for War Documentation (Nederlands Instituut voor Oorlogsdocumentatie)

Description
The Netherlands Institute for War Documentation is the centre for information and research on the Netherlands and former Dutch East Indies and World War II. It was founded after 8 May 1945, when the German occupation in the Netherlands ended. It is a centre for academic research which fosters the publication of research, and provides information both to government bodies and to individuals.

The Netherlands Institute for War Documentation houses the archives of the Resistance, illegal newspapers, pamphlets, posters, photographs, books and articles. Shortly after it was established, it received a collection of confiscated holdings from Dutch and German Nazi institutions. Among the publications are a complete series of Dutch daily newspapers printed during the Occupation: Nieuwe Rotterdamse Courant, Algemeen Handelsblad, De Telegraaf; Nazi publications such as Het Nationale Dagblad, Volk en Vaderland, Storm, De Waag, De Schouw and De Misthoorn, and German publications, such as Deutsche Zeitung in den Niederlanden, Signal, Frankfurter Zeitung and Das Reich . There is a separate collection of volumes on the rise of anti-Semitism and the persecution of the Jews.

The Institute has over 300 archives, a collection of books numbering in excess of 50,000 volumes and a large photo library. The archives include the files of German institutions and persons in occupied Netherlands, Dutch institutions and persons in occupied Netherlands and in exile, postwar institutions and photographic reproductions of archives from other sources.

The Institute also undertakes original research projects. Dr Gerard Aalders is currently carrying out research into the theft of Jewish property in the Netherlands and its recovery after the war.
