Middelburg Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 9 photos
Everywhere in The Netherlands people organised help for the victims of the disaster. Hundreds of children were sent on holiday, even as far as Italy, to regain strength and help them forget the bad times.
Many goods were collected, food, clothes and houseware. The photo shows some products from those times: soap, tinned peas...
To raise money there were stamp savings, concerts and exhibitions, an old man polished shoes for a fee, books were published, children organised fundraising with cents and dimes and the tv-stations held a charity called Purses Open, Dykes Closed (Beurzen open, dijken dicht).
