This article should mention that the highly respected Loe de Jong made a blunder. The allegations were later found to be unfounded. Andries (talk) 19:25, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

the allegations were NOT unfounded, they were factually correct in every detail except that he was a member of the Germaansche SS and not the Waffen SS. The current section is a disgusting POV whitewashing of Aantjes' past, clearly written by a sympathizer and not offering sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:19, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

POV dispute[edit]

Currently, the "World War II controversy" section is written to fully exonorate Aantjes, adding strongly POV statements like "assumed that Aantjes had joined the Germaansche SS out of mere opportunism or sympathy for the Nazi ideology or the Dutch collaborating fascist National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands which was not the case" while not providing ANY sources or citations. This section needs to be rewritten in a neutral, encyclopaedic fashion and not as a whitewashing of Aantjes' past. (talk) 15:23, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Someone removed the POV-tag, but did not address the issues mentioned or explain the action on the talk page here. That is against policy. The problem remains: a highly pro-Aantjes slanted explanation of the events is given, but NO SOURCES are provided. That is highly unencyclopaedic and violates NPOV. Tag restored.

Well, anonymous ip, here are 2 sources: [1] and [2]. Translate it, and see if you can put it into the article. If not, I'll give it a try. Best regards,Jeff5102 (talk) 15:29, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
