Ingrid de Zwarte investigates political and social responses to the Dutch famine of 1944-45, popularly known as the 'Hunger Winter', that occurred in the western Netherlands during the final months of the German occupation. As previous studies have mainly considered the role of the state and self-serving individuals, she considers a wider range of responses, investigating state institutions, households and communities.
