The flood which killed 1,835 people and left 72,000 homeless, is the theme of a dramatic new film entitled "De Storm", a reconstruction of the gravest natural catastrophe in the country's modern history. www.destormdefilm.nl
On the night of January 31, 1953, the southwestern dykes separating the Netherlands from the North Sea failed to keep out severe spring tide flooding.
The Netherlands' 1953 floods is without doubt the one of the most critical post-war events in the country. This disaster has a symbolic character for The Netherlands: the low countries, which are vulnerable to the sea; the great confidence the Dutch have in the sea defences and – if things do go wrong- the singleness of purpose with which the country is built up again.
