The Post-war Fate of Nazi Collaborators

When the war ended, the Dutch people began seeking out those who collaborated with the Germans during the occupation.  Some collaborators were tried in court for treason, but many Nazi sympathizers were punished without trial by angry mobs. Men who fought with the Germans were used to clear minefields, resulting in more casualties, and women accused of having sex with German soldiers were also subject to harsh treatment. The Dutch government even deported anyone that held a German passport.

Rounding up pro-Nazi citizens was a common occurence after the war ended.
