Jews in the Netherlands since 1945 are mainly associated with war, sorrow and loss. The other side of the story – the vitality of this period – has long been overshadowed. The exhibition showed the great diversity of Jewish life in the Netherlands: the return from the war, the emigration, the processing of trauma, the renewal of relations with non-Jews and new directions in Judaism. The accompanying publication includes essays by leading writers about important aspects of Jewish life in the Netherlands from 1945 to 2010.
