    Abstract

    In the history of the relations between communism and social democracy in the Netherlands in the post‐war era, the communist appeals to reunification of the working class movement run like a continuous thread. Apart from ideological reasons, the Dutch Communist Party tried to overcome its situation of political isolation this way ‐ it even sacrificed its own trade union to this objective. However, no matter how often these pleas were voiced, social democracy rejected them.
