German and Austrian War Children In The Netherlands
Welcome to the DOKIN website!
Dokin is a Dutch acronym for Duitse Oorlogskinderen In Nederland (German War Children in the Netherlands). Here you will find information about the refugee children from the Third Reich who came to the Netherlands after Kristallnacht.
After Reichskristallnacht (starting November 9th, 1938), many parents in Germany and Austria decided to send their children abroad, alone.
Not many countries were willing to accept refugees. The fact that England has accepted about 8000 children is well-known and well documented. The so called Kindertransports from Germany to London are famous. The fact that some other European countries did accept some of the refugee children is largely unknown.
There were almost 2000 children that came to the Netherlands.
On this website you will find information on these children and about this period in Dutch history.
In the Children section you will find information which Miriam has collected over the years. For privacy reasons this list is split in two: the children whom she knows to have been killed in the camps or have died in other ways during the Shoah are in the Public Database, whereas the ones who did or might have survived are in the Secure zone of this website. To access this data (free of charge) you will need to request a username and password. We will personally approve the request, so this is not always done instantly.
In the secure zone you will also find the letters that Elisabeth Eylenburg wrote from Berlin to her sons foster mother Elisa Wijsenbeek in The Hague.
In the Refugee Homes section you will find descriptions of all the homes where the refugee children were housed. Miriam has also placed some group pictures here.
In the Publications section you will find all the articles Miriam has written and that have been written about her research.
In the Links and Literature section you will find a listing of related publications and websites.

De vereniging Ezer Jatom opende op 4 mei 1932 een joods weeshuis in de Pletterijstraat 66 in Den Haag. Op 6 maart 1943 haalden de Duitsers de kinderen en het personeel uit het weeshuis. Onder hen waren vele Duitse vluchtelingetjes, zoals Ernst Spicker.
