Problems in Translation

One of the tabs on the Herrineringscentrum Kamp Westerbork website is, in Dutch, is “Jodenvervolging”. Their English version website translates this a “Persecution of the Jews.” Joden means “Jews”; Vervolging means “persecuting” or “pursuing”. Google Translate translates the compound words as “Jew-Baiting”.

No comment, just curious.
