Preliminary research by NIOD
The NS Committee on Individual Compensation for Victims of WWII Deportations has recommended that a thorough study be conducted into the role NS played during World War II, with a special focus on deportations during the wary.
The committee's latest recommendations
The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the history of NS during the war and to reflect on the company's actions during that time. To that end, NS has asked the NIOD to conduct a preliminary study of the subject.
The NIOD expects to complete the preliminary research in around six months, starting in June 2020. If the preliminary study indicates that more research is needed, then NS will ask the NIOD to continue with its work.
The recommendation to commission a thorough study of NS' role during the war is the last of the Committee's recommendations that had not yet been addressed.
