The Netherlands still have not completely closed the accounts with the dark years of the deportations, when the 140 thousand jews sent to the extermination camps survived only 38mila. "It is up to us, the generations of the post-war period, continue to commemorate, honor the fallen, name by name," added the premier laying a wreath at the national Memorial of the Holocaust of Amsterdam, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the extermination camp of Auschwitz. According to Rutte, the Dutch government was less to her duty as a "guardian of justice and security", and too many officials at the Dutch carried out the orders of the occupying German. "Seventy-five years later, anti-semitism is still among us. It is for this that we need to recognize what happened at the time".
Not only that, after the war, many prisoners were forced to pay taxes not paid in the period of deportation and who had not the means to do so were seized from the houses and their belongings. In 2018, the railway company, the Dutch state-owned “NS” has declared that it would pay compensation to the survivors and to the families of the people he transported to the death camps.
With a kippah on the head blue, the premier then declared to be conscious of the impossibility of finding the right words to describe something so horrible as the Holocaust". The survivors present at the ceremony were welcomed with "great emotion" of the speech "historic and symbolic" of Rutte. The only previous dates back to 1995, when, speaking before the israeli parliament, the queen Beatrix of the Netherlands admitted that the Netherlands had not helped enough their countrymen the jews during the war. Except in that episode, no government had before now said sorry for the criminal collaboration of the Dutch during the nazi occupation of their Country between 1940 and 1945. Zoni Weisz, whose parents and brothers died in the concentration camps, said she would accept the apology of the Dutch government, even if they come with 75 years of delay.
