Het water en de herinnering

The memory of the flood of February 1953 has been swallowed up, as it were, by the fading images of people fleeing, food drops and water. In Het water en de herinnering (Water and memory) an attempt is made, based on memories and subjective experiences, to give the disaster, which has great significance for the formation of Dutch identity in recent decades, a place in national historiography.
