In 1968, J. Rijken, R.L. Schuursma and Sj. Vellenga interviewed seventy-one-year-old Johan Huijts (1897-1995), editor-in-chief of the Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant (later the NRC) during World War II. Shortly after the war, Huijts was arrested and faced subsequent purge trials by the ‘Commissie voor Perszuivering’ for his cooperation with German rules for Dutch journalism. With his expulsion, he was also expelled from the Dutch Journalist Circle and the Maatschappij der Nederlandse Letterkunde, among others.
