Recent onderzoek heeft geleerd dat Nederlandse jongeren anti-Duitse sentimenten hebben. Dat is niet nieuw. Maar ook niet iets van alle tijden. Toen vanaf 1948 in Nederland weer Duitse films vertoond mochten worden, was gedurende enige tijd de Duitse muziekfilm in Nederland razend populair, jongeren spiegelden zich aan schlagerzangeressen, wat leidde tot een nieuwe jongerencultuur. In onderstaand artikel beschrijft Mustafa Özen de periode in de jaren vijftig dat Nederlandse jongeren vielen voor idolen als Caterina Valente, Conny Froboess,Freddy Quinn en Peter Alexander.Hier bin ich, hier bleib ich (I'm here, I'm staying here). Popularity of German cinema in the Netherlands in the 1950s.Recent studies indicate that Dutch youth harbour anti-German sentiments. This is nothing new. However, Germany has not always been out of favour with Dutch youngsters. Starting in 1948 after German films were again permitted to be shown, German musicals enjoyed enormous popularity in the Netherlands. A new youth culture emerged around scores of youngsters imitating German female pop singers. In the article below, Mustafa Özen describes how Dutch youth in the 1950S swooned over idols including Caterina Valente, Conny Froboess, Freddy Quinn and Peter Alexander.
