    Just started watching this film on You Tube. The Netherlands in the Second World War- Daily Life'. 'Really a series of films .

    Trying to work out the first scene. The commentary suggests that this was a party for poor children organised by the 'Green Police ', ( 1941) who were responsible for law enforcement in occupied territories. As well as supplying food, the Green Police entertain the children with songs, then a clown appears, encouraging the children to give three cheers for the police.

    From 5.36 into the film. there's clip of Dutch apprentices getting training opportunities to work for the German aircraft industry,

    A minute later a 1942 fashion show in Rotterdam featuring German models.

    Then a Christmas party for Dutch children whose fathers are working in Germany in 1942 ....lots more besides.

    Got as far as the Summer party for young children whose parents were in the Dutch Fascist NSB held in 1943 , about 10.54 in :
