Correct. From 1909 to 1940 the Netherlands knew the "Amsterdam time". This time zone was 20 minutes behind Greenwich. When the Netherlands was occupied by Nazi Germany, the occupier introduced Central European Time ("Berlin Time"). That was exactly one hour behind Greenwich. After the Second World War, this time zone continued.Probably the time zone in the Netherlands
