Why didn’t the Netherlands gain territory after World War 2? (Short Animated Documentary)

Many gained land from their axis occupiers in World War 2. The Dutch did not. So why?

  1. The bundesnachrichtendienst started a Confucius joke and keep getting outmatched by confusion from Britain and its commonwealth of nations who even leverage puns and not-picky associations and forced affiliations and the like…

  2. Interesting to hear that once again the British stood in the way of the Netherlands. This is a common theme since the forming of the Dutch republic after gaining independence from Spain. Makes me wonder why why England was ever considered a friendly country. I guess in the Netherlands money trumps principals. Of course this information isn’t common knowledge.

  3. In the end the Dutch government did not want to expand because they worried they could not even fund the post-war recovery of the Netherlands let alone German lands. Without people to work the land,shops and factories it would be useless. But which
    Dutch voter would want to wait on his house so a German could have one. Or even worse everything was still on rations and now you have to tell your people they have to share them with Germans. Even if it would be a net gain, the general opinion would find the negative points and go mental..

    The Dutch had trouble to staff their own coal mines already. The miners were suppressed by the local state and church to prevent unions for improved working conditions and general felt treated like criminals. And the only other serious group of people moving into the mines were actually convicted collaborators. They got time of their sentence if they moved into the mines. So any annexed coal mines without Germans could not be staffed. And nobody wanted Germans into the Dutch borders.

    If I recall correctly one typical Dutch thing was that for the few border changes better water management played an important role in the decision making.

  4. Truth: because everyone knew the level of Dutch collaboration with the Germans. The exportation of Jews percentually was probably the highest in the Netherlands. Of course, in the end they liked to preaent themselves as freedom fighters and marketed the story of Anne Frank. In reality, their very nature is to get away from any major fight and send a bill aterwards. They still have the same mentality when doing UN missions. The dutch reporters are known to ask 'will it be dangerous for our un soldiers?' As if only their lives matter…. in the end they get the easiest missions and send the bills first. Thats their reputation, here at the UN office.

  5. The Netherlands also wanted Ostfriesland (East Frisia) by the Nord Sea which would have also been reasonable due to the ethnic and linguistic connection among Frisians in North West Germany and the Netherlands.

  6. If hitler wans not anti-jew probably germany wouldn't have lost so much territory in poland, so much pain and destruction for what ? For nothing !!!! At the end germany lost every thing
