Froukje Demant’s research focuses on the coexistence of Jews and non-Jews in the Twente area in the east of the Netherlands and the adjacent region of Germany from the 1920s through the 1950s. She studies social processes before and after the Holocaust, focusing on the day-to-day interactions between Jews and non-Jews. She also examines how coexistence between the groups was re-established when survivors of the Holocaust returned.
