THE JEWISH COUNCIL

IN DEVELOPMENT

The is no other West-European country where during the period of 1940-1945 so many Jews were deported as in The Netherlands. How could this happen? Why did the Dutch authorities and members of the Jewish Council politely cooperated to this horrible project, and how did the German occupant convince the authorities and Dutch Jews? This is a concept for a five episode miniseries, which tries to answer these questions.
