Abstract

World War II in the Netherlands lasted from May 1940 to May 1945. Suicide numbers peaked in these months, in the first case because of suicide by Jews, and in the second case because of suicide by collaborators with the German occupier. Suicide rates for Jews were higher in 1942 than in 1940 and even higher in 1943 than in 1942. Foreign Jews were more likely to die of suicide than Dutch Jews, and Jewish women more than Jewish men. Suicide of non-Jews was lower in the intermittent war years than in the years before and after World War II.
