Chapter Summary

The capitulation of Germany and Japan in May and August 1945 brought the Second World War to an official close. However, the conflict left a legacy with a deep and long-lasting effect on many nations-including the Netherlands and the Dutch East-Indies/Indonesia. This chapter presents the main theme: the dominance of organic thinking in the post-war Netherlands. It refutes the (common) assumption that people had no eye for the psychological needs of the repatriates and other victims of war. Indeed, it shows that psychological and emotional problems, especially of those who had spent the war years far away from home in degrading circumstances, were widely acknowledged.
