A fascinating read 20 février 2013
Par Simone K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this book because it covered two topics that fascinate me: soccer and Holland in WWII (my late grandparents were teenagers in the Netherlands during Nazi Occupation). It did not disappoint. While it did focus more on Dutch Jewish history than I expected, the stories Kuper told in this book were riveting. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Ajax, soccer, and the war 5 février 2013
Par Margaret Ann Simmons - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The war, any war, has its share of heroism and valor as well as betrayal, secrets, suffering and sin. Sport is too often framed in heroic metaphor but it contains all the parts of human nature seen in war (lacking only women, until Title 10.) This book tells the familiar story one more time and it is so worth it. Human Nature is what it is all about!

Dutch Tears 10 juin 2013
Par Charlie Bartel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
To say that Simon Kuper was meant to write this book is to ignore history. He wrote this book earlier in Dutch, and then decided (or was encouraged) to re-write (and add more) in English. And none of that matters.

More than any other Western European country Holland welcomed the Nazi if for no other reason than to make their occupation go smoothly. But when the war ended many in Dutch society tried to deny their past and act like they couldn't be blamed. It took a new generation, coming of age in the 60's to force the Dutch to live up to their past.

Kuper chooses Holland's most famous club, Ajax of Amsterdam. The Ajax stadium was located inside the Jewish section of the city. Many of the clubs directors and back room staff were Jews. No club suffered more at the hands of the Nazis and their compliant Dutch hosts. Kuper finds the survivors and gets their stories. I cried.

As Dutch society changed, driven by the post war generation, Ajax was reborn through a combination of English and Dutch coaches. They found and developed Europe's greatest ever player Johan Cruyff. Cruyff took his teammates to the heights of the European game with 3 consecutive European Cups and a runner up spot in the 1974 World Cup. He then left for Barcelona as a player and a manager. Spain has won the last two European Nation's Cup and the last World Cup, playing a system created and taught by Cruyff. Because of his time at Ajax it was assumed by many (especially Cruyff's many critics) that he came from a Jewish family. Cruyff denied that. Kuper suggests that those who made those claims were in fact the the the inheritors of the Nazi collaborators during the war, willing to trash the reputation of the country's greatest sporting hero to preserve anti-Semitic prejudices from the past. Cruyff escaped to Spain.

Kuper's book deals with painful memories. He doesn't hide from this. He faces Holland's past head on and makes the reader deeply feel for how the victims suffered. We live in an era of great football journalists like JIMMY BURNS, JOHN FOOT, and JONATHAN WILSON. SIMON KUPER with AJAX THE DUTCH, THE WAR takes his place at the head table. Read this book. Read all his books.
