Exhibition 1953 Flood
20 hours of north-westerly storm pushed the waters of the North Sea up to a height of 4.20 meters above Amsterdam ordnance zero. This proved too much for the dikes in Zeeland. Hundreds of gaps appeared and almost 200,000 hectares were flooded with swirling, salty sea water. The exhibition about the 1953 flood at Delta-Expo communicates the human experience of the catastrophe.
