This video shows that in 1943, during the Hitler occupation, the Dutch nazi party NSB opened their first children’s home on the border of Nijmegen city and Berg en Dal village.
Unfortunately, today in Nijmegen there were violent people who wanted to go back to the days of the fascist Third Reich. When children, like in the 1943 Nijmegen home, got a nazi ideology indoctrination. And when LGBTQ people were deported to death camps.
Translated from Dutch daily De Gelderlander, in Nijmegen city in Gelderland province today:
Library calls off drag queen lecture because of demonstrating right-wing extremists
NIJMEGEN – The Nijmegen library has canceled a reading afternoon by drag queens on Saturday afternoon due to the presence of right-wing extremists. An hour before the start, around 1pm, young men walked around the library who were ‘experienced as threatening’. The reading afternoon has then been canceled.

Outside there were around 2pm four activists, members of Identitarian Resistance from North Brabant province, an extreme right-wing action group. One of them wore a crucifix and a black flag with the symbol of the group; a second man distributed flyers containing the text ‘We are here now to promote the traditional family as the cornerstone of society. Transgender people read to children from the age of four on, traditional values and standards are pushed aside. This is forced upon us”, according to the campaigner.
It feels a bit ambiguous, says library director Bert Hogemans about the decision to call off the reading session. “Now you have the feeling that the activists get their way. As a public organization, you do not want to give in, but on the other hand, it’s about safety.”
At a previous reading by a drag queen in early October, members of the [extreme right Roman] Catholic foundation Civitas Christiana … demonstrated. Within the library there was then no problem, but outside a grim atmosphere arose with a disturbance between activists and passersby. That demonstration then had been announced. The Saturday afternoon action was a surprise. Hogemans: “We had no indication that there would be a demonstration. There were also no signals from the police.”
