German literature publishing house founded in 1933 in Amsterdam, which offered many authors who had been banned and persecuted by the National Socialists the opportunity to continue to publish their books in German. The company, which was founded by Emanuel Querido (1871–1943) and Fritz Helmut Landshoff (1901–1988) became one of the most important German exile publishers in the second half of the 1930s. By the time of the German invasion of the Netherlands in 1940, 119 titles and the political literary monthly journal Die Sammlung, edited by Klaus Mann, were published by Querido.
