Project description

Collaborators in Flanders have succeeded in depicting the post-war purge as an anti-Flemish, harsh and never-ending operation. This research aims to demonstrate the genesis and success of this collective memory through a structural and empirical analysis of sources that reveal the functioning of their organisations and the ways in which other milieus connected and sympathised.
