By Ron Eyerman
Eyerman makes use of theories of social drama and cultural trauma to judge the reactions to and results of the homicide. A social drama is prompted via a public transgression of taken-for-granted norms; person who threatens the collective id of a society might turn into a cultural trauma.

As a part of his research of the homicide and reactions to it, he discusses major points of twentieth-century Dutch heritage, together with the country’s remedy of Jews throughout the German profession, the lack of its colonies within the wake of worldwide conflict II, its recruitment of immigrant staff, and the failure of Dutch troops to guard Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995.
