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

In 2022 I did a follow-up on the (small) city of Coevorden. This was an interesting market town with a relatively large Jewish population. An article on this is forthcoming.
