Adolf Hitler and Arthur Seyss-Inquart

Adolf Hitler names Arthur Seyss-Inquart Reichskommissar for the Occupied Netherlands.

His job is to direct civil administration, establish closer economic ties with Germany, and defend the interests of Germany in the Netherlands.

A major part of defending Germany's interests is combatting the resistance. Arthur Seyss-Inquart will authorize several hundred executions of resistance members and their families during the war. Another important part of this is identifying and deporting Jews, something which he does eagerly because he is such a staunch anti-Semite.
