The leadership of the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands (NSB), a Dutch far-right political organisation that existed between 1931 and 1945, was unable to control its own militia. The Amsterdam branch of the ‘Weerafdeling’, the NSB’s militia’, overstepped the boundaries of self-defence on a regular basis. In defiance of the political leadership, members incited violent clashes with opponents ranging from communists to rival fascists. This is one of the findings of Gertjan Broek’s PhD research, which throws light on far-right militias that were active in Amsterdam between 1923 and 1942.
