Amsterdam Fined Concentration Camp Survivors after War

It has now become known, more than 65 years after the Second World War that the city of Amsterdam fined hundreds of Jewish Holocaust survivors for tax avoidance when they were in concentration camps or hiding from the Nazis. This was exposed by the daily Het Parool and has been picked up by the Washington Times. Numerous Jewish homes were then confiscated and occupied by Dutch Nazi members. Amsterdam continued with its tax policy even as other municipalities waived their debts.
