Manhunt in which the police force gathered and arrested groups of people.

They would search for certain individuals or arrest civilians at random. The first Dutch raid took place in February 1941. In retaliation for a fight between primarily Jewish squads of thugs and German and Dutch Nazis, over 400 largely Jewish young main were seized off the street at random and deported to Mauthausen via the concentration camps at Schoorl and Buchenwald. This instigated the February strike. The final raid was in September 1943, when the last Jews living in the Netherlands, mostly leaders of the Jewish Council, were fetched from their homes and deported.
