I work on several research projects

Consumerism 1870-1940

One of my research projects is on consumerism and the supplier network. Based on the administration of a Hotel 1870-1940 (the purchases from the book of creditors), I analyze where specific goods were bought, their prices and when new goods were introduced.

Next project is coming up

Jewish Real Estate 1940-1955

During the Second World War Jewish properties were stolen and sold. Some of the real estate was bought by city-councils and government officials.

In 2021, with a team, I did research on this topic in the city of Groningen and its surrounding villages. This was publihed as a free PDF report

In 2022 and 2023 I did follow-ups on the (small) city of Coevorden and the twin city of Kampen-IJsselmuiden. These were interesting towns with relatively large Jewish populations. On Coevorden an article (in Dutch) was published. The report on Kampen-IJsselmuiden will be published at WBooks publishers.
