Answers 1Add Yours
The Netherlands hoped to stay neutral when World War II broke out in 1939 but this did not happen when Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands in May 1940. Later on, the Dutch government and the royal family went into exile in London. The occupying forces were supported by a minority of the Dutch. Some resistance was carried out by a small minority which became bigger during the five year takeover. The Germans sent the majority of the country's Jews to concentration camps. In doing so they were assisted by the Dutch police and civil service. Most of the South of the country was freed in the second half of 1944. On May 5, 1945, the whole country was liberated by the Canadian Forces.
