Flevoland’ memory

Flevolands Memory is full of fascinating stories about the youngest province in the Netherlands.

On the website Flevolandsgeheugen.nl you can read personal stories about the Zuiderzee, the reclamation and life on the new land.
But also about the first stores or the first Sinterklaas parade in the young cities of Almere and Lelystad and the time when Urk was still an island.
