  1. Trouw

    '"Trouw" is a Dutch quality daily newspaper appearing in tabloid size. In November 2012 the newspaper was awarded the "European newspaper of the year award. '"Trouw" is a Dutch word meaning "fidelity", "loyalty", or "allegiance", and is cognate with the English adjective "true". The newspaper's name comes from its origin as a newspaper of the resistance in the Second World War pledging allegiance and loyalty to God and Country in spite of the German occupation of The Netherlands. The Trouw was started during World War II by members of the Dutch Protestant resistance. Hundreds of people involved in the production and distribution of the newspaper were arrested and killed during the war. The newspaper was published irregularly during the war due to lack of paper. In August 1944 the Nazi occupying forces tried to stop publication by rounding up and imprisoning some 130 of the couriers. They issued an ultimatum to the leaders of Trouw; however, the editors did not give in and all of the captured couriers were executed. Amongst the people that lost their life during the war due to their involvement with the newspaper was Trouw co-founder and resistance member Wim Speelman. In 2004 the paper changed its format from broadsheet to tabloid. In their own words, in 2005, they intended to "remain a newspaper rooted in a Christian tradition and to be a source of contemplation and inspiration for everyone, churchgoer or not, who feels a need for moral and spiritual orientation."
