This research project focuses on the persecution of the Jews in Rotterdam during the Second World War and the restoration of their rights after the war. In this project Marleen will study the specific, local situation of Rotterdam during and after the war and compare this with the situation in other bombed and/or port cities in both the Netherlands and Europe. She wants to demonstrate the importance of the local conditions with regard to the policy of the persecution and the restoration of rights of the Jews.
