Two pages of a German report from 1918 describing the books on offer at bookstores located within the train station in The Hague.


The intensive work of German propagandists in the Netherlands included continuous observation of the situation relating to the Dutch book market. Extensive documentation was produced on this. The reports contained information about anti-German, as well as pro-German, publications available on the Dutch market. The texts detail political books and fiction, giving specific examples with the name of the author and the title of the book.
