with the capturing of Jews, with 90% of the Amsterdam police co-operating in some way with Jewish detentions (Hirschfield, 1988, p.177). The Dutch population itself also assisted the German policy by helping capture Jews themselves, with more than 2,500 Dutch people being convicted after the war for their involvement (Bovenkerk, 2000, p.250). Whilst there was a proportion of the population that helped endorse the German’s anti-Jewish policies there was also a large amount of opposition to them. However, the opposition was successfully put-down as seen with the February 1941 strikes, which was ruthlessly stopped by the Wehrmacht, forcing the strike to end immediately (Foray, 2010, p.780). Large-scale resistance, as seen in Belgium and France, was not organised until later when most of the Jewish population had already been deported (Blom, 1989, p.342). Overall, from a German perspective, the policy of the deportation of the Jews in the Netherlands was very successful, on account of the effectiveness of the German administration and Dutch Bureaucracy as well as the physical geography of the Netherlands. In conclusion, whilst the German occupation of the Netherlands differed from most other occupations in that the country was grounded by a civilian administration, this did not affect the successful implementation of a number of policies. The least successful policy of the German occupation was their failed attempt at Nazification of the Netherlands. Despite trying to use the national elites, other Nazi policies and the fact that national socialism had no historical roots in the Netherlands meant the Dutch did not accept Nazification into their way of life (Warmbrunn, 1963, p.263). The latter strikes exemplified further the anti-Nazi feelings within the Netherlands and thus Seyss-Inquart’s failure with this policy. In terms of the policy of utilising the Dutch economy for German war effort, the Germans were reasonably successful, using both Dutch industry and labour. However, the Germans did not pursue this policy in a sustainable way, which meant that the Dutch economy and its production suffered. The most successful of the German policies discussed was the deportation and subsequent execution of Jews from the Netherlands, a policy of huge importance for the Third Reich.
