Experience Old IJmuiden

BeLeef Oud-IJmuiden, a project of the Verhalen Verbinden Foundation and was carried out by Marlenne Schrijver and Agnes de Boer in cooperation with the Welzijn Velsen Foundation.


In 2014 and 2015, Agnes de Boer and Marlenne Schrijver interviewed some 40 Old IJmuiden residents. These stories appeared in the IJmuider Courant and were collected in the book Beleef Oud-IJmuiden. Richly supplemented with anecdotes from the history of Oud-IJmuiden, the book is about canal diggers, quay knights, fishermen, steelworkers, shopkeepers, maternity wives, neighbourhood workers and, in any case, pioneers and hard workers. Agnes and Marlenne have supplemented the book with photos from official and personal archives.
