    Winter Aid Netherlands (winterhulp Nederland or in Germany winterhilfswerke Deutschland)


    Winter Aid was the shared name of the Winter Relief Foundation Netherlands (WHN), the Nazi organization that all social assistance as granted by the government, private and church organizations to take over. Netherlands during the Second World War

    Winter Aid was founded on October 22, 1940 by rich Commissioner Seyss-Inquart. The assistance was in the parlance focused on winter. Under National Socialism could not according to the teachings poverty exist only in times of winter cold would be extra charity in the form of food, clothing and so needed. The aid consisted of vouchers and goods as food, clothing, etc. Initially Jews also received aid, but this aid stopped quickly.


    The revenues of the Winter Aid consisted of: Collects, lotteries, 5% of the profits of companies and a deduction of 1% on employee wages. The Collects were not very popular with the Dutch, was regularly called nothing to give to the NSB. The lotteries were popular, however, because the gambling often won the principles. To encourage generous gifts from collections received givers badges. These badges were issued in every other series (fairy tales, flowers, traffic signs, etc.) making them popular savings were objects. The first pin in the Netherlands was released, a luminous mill. The 'ordinary' people wanted the pins not and said, "Only NSB walk with windmills." The Collects in later years were no longer there, it was verified whether someone gave and how much. Really obligation
