Simon Kuper has written extensively on football He was brought up in the Netherlands Originally published in Dutch this revised edition appeared in 2011 The title is somewhat awkward so is the book He has the three subjects of the title but he does not really marry them together The subtitle is inaccurateFirst there is Ajax The club had strong Jewish support before 1939 In the 1950s and 1960s it was built into a world class club with the aid of Jewish money players and a famous physiotherapist In recent times its fans have attached themselves to the Israeli national flag It is very popular in Israel Yet the club rejects its Jewish links There is no memorial in the Arena to those of its members who died in the camps Simon Kuper tries to make sense of these apparent contradictions but is dragged away by the other two elements in the bookThen there is Holland He does not disguise a certain dislike for a country that represents itself as a haven of tolerance whereas the facts tell a different tale Over 80% of Dutch Jews died in the camps Dutch gentiles as it were did not do much to stop the deportations The ball rolled on as he writes uoting an earlier scholar Mendacious Amsterdam has made dishonest use of Anne Frank to cover its sins Anti Semitism was appearing on the terraces in the 1980s A general hostility to immigrants is now well established in Dutch politicsFinally central to the history of both Ajax and Holland is the war However the author spends as much time on the experience of France Britain and Germany The best part of the book is actually a section on Sparta Rotterdam during the occupation This is based on the author s discovery of a treasure trove in its archives But it is not Ajax as promised in the titleHe interviewed some fascinating old timers many now dead He did a lot of background reading He accessed two important unpublished doctoral theses He knows his sport He cares about injustice He is angry about the fate of Holland s Jews There are some startling revelations in 1945 one Dutch club was found to be using prayer shawls to mark its corner flags their owners were already turned to ash in AuschwitzUltimately the book lacks tightness and coherence I suspect he did not find enough for what he wanted to be his main theme Ajax 1940 1945 Eually he could not drop other material he did come across fascinating but not really directly linked to Ajax 1940 45 It is still a good read take it chapter by chapter
