The national swimming championships of the Nederlandsche Zwembond (Netherlands Swimming Association) are held in Leiden. J. van Merkesteijn wins in the men's 100m borstcrawl; the women's 200m breast stroke is won by Nel van Vliet; the platform diving is won by C. de Goede.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
