This article is about the humanitarian support of the Netherlands destined to Algerian refugees in Morocco and Tunisia during the Algerian war of independence (1954-1962). At the political level, in The Hague, the Franco-Algerian conflict went largely unnoticed for the reason that the Netherlands, a colonial power, scrambled with Indonesia on the New Guinea. However, from 1957, within mass media and public opinion, a gradual awareness was manifested. From 1959, there was question of a growing mobilization with the setting up of committees aimed to awaken public opinion (such as the Action Committee Information Algeria), and, notably with the establishment of the television campaign "Save a child", which acquired an unexpected success.
