This article uses the archives of the Czech publishing house Družstevní práce during World War II, which give insight into how certain works were selected as DP struggled to maintain its identity. Between the World Wars, DP published several Dutch and Flemish authors, but the number of translated works from Dutch grew considerably in the 1940s since Dutch-language literature was one of the few literatures allowed during the Nazi occupation. Despite the fact that the Nazi authorities exerted great pressure to publish Nazi-friendly literature, DP managed to avoid publishing such books by using officially acceptable Dutch, Flemish and Scandinavian works as a political compromise.
