BLANKENSTEIN, MARCUS VAN (1880–1964), Dutch journalist. From 1909 to 1920, Blankenstein reported from Berlin, returned to Rotterdam in 1931, and became chief foreign editor of the Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant. He left in 1936 when his articles were considered too anti-Nazi. He reached England in 1940 and became chief editor of the Free Dutch weekly Vrij Nederland in London. After the war he was a foreign editor and roving correspondent of the daily Het Parool. -ADD.
