White broadside with blue text in Dutch. Titled, "Aanmeldingsplicht van personen van geheel of gedeeltelijk Joodschen bloede."
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A broadside Grevenhage [Den Haag] in Dutch bearing the heading "Obligation to notify persons of Jewish blood, whole or part." It demanded that all Jews in the town register with the auhtorities. This move was part of a slow campaign against the Jews of the Netherlands that began shortly after the invasion of May 1940. Unlike Poland and other occupied countries, the repression of the Jews in the Netherlands was a series of discriminatory measures implemented over many months in order to dilute public resistance. This order did meet resistance from the Dutch people. On February 25, 1941 the Dutch Communist Party organized a strike of municipal workers in Amsterdam that rapidly grew into a general strike across the country. The strike was crushed in days, but it remains as the only such anti-pogrom strike ever staged in Nazi-occupied Europe.
