From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

De Waarheid (literally 'The Truth') was the Dutch Communist Party newspaper. It originated in 1940 under the German occupation as a resistance paper, the day after general H.G. Winkelman had forbidden publication of the earlier Communist Volksdagblad. The party decided on May 15, 1940 to continue the Volksdagblad illegally under the name 'De Waarheid'. The first months were spent setting up a nationwide network of 'handout points' ('stencilposten'), the main articles would be written centrally, whereas the different 'handout ponts' added localized articles. These local versions sometimes were published under different names as 'De vonk' ('The spark') and 'Het noorderlicht' ('The northern light'). The main Publication was continued until 28 April 1990.[1]
