During the German occupation of the Netherlands Dutch civilian prisons and jails were routinely used by German organisations such as the Sicherheitsdienst for the internment of political prisoners and occasionally Jewish citizens. Dutch prison staff functioned as the guards of these prisoners, but also as intermediaries between political prisoners and their supporters outside. Their complex position makes prison staff an excellent case study to better understand the position of Dutch citizens in general, and especially civil servants, between the extremes of resistance and collaboration.
