Abstract

De Overval (1961) is the most iconic film on Dutch resistance during the Second World War, for decades deeply embedded not only in Dutch memory culture, but above all in Fryslan, where the 'silent raid' actually had taken place in december 1944. This article analyses how the position and meaning of the film has changed over the last 60 year, in the context of shifting national and regional perspectives.
