    And now most in it have never had a chance to learn what the world was happy to forget in 1946. Fascism was a VERY popular political fashion in the 1930s. There were Fascist almost everywhere. By the late 1930s the Nazis, and their 'Leader', Adolf Hitler, had proponents in every western nation. The man who gave Rupert Murdoch his road map, William Randolph Hearst, had assembled a media empire which published columns by his stars, Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. (guess which was on time with his columns and which was tardy?) The Dutch, the 'lowland germans,' had the racial credentials and a language so close to 'german' as to be easily confused. How might we place this all in perspective? The 'West' was waging a war against a totalitarianism which many in those societies did not oppose. The Fascist were waging a political crusade as well as a war of racial superiority. This story is important for it shines light into a crevice of the world that the world - and the Dutch - has long wished to ignore.
