The inspiring story of the development of flood control and land reclamation in the Netherlands: the struggle of a people whose hard work, persistence and character built their country and protected their land from natural disaster.
Documents the labor-intensive construction of the dikes and polders of the Zuiderzee and in the Rhine delta. Includes unique historical scenes of the founding of Lelystad on land reclaimed from the sea. Produced in 1969.
Ernest Kleinberg (1910-1980) was born in Breslau, Germany. He grew up in Vienna, where he became a photographer for American news agencies and Life magazine. In March 1938 he was arrested by the Gestapo for photographing Hitler's march into Vienna. Released six weeks later thanks to pressure from American friends, he escaped to New York where he resumed photography and rescued his entire family from Nazi Austria. In the early 1950s he became a self-taught film producer. He subsequently completed more than 25 documentary movies.

My mom and grandparents came to Canada after 53 flood , between the war in witch grandma was shot in foot by a nazi , grandpa was in the Dutch navy then went in to the resistance where he met my grandma, they would not speak about those times this is all we know in our family about those times , the Dutch are a beautiful people I think my love of the water must come from them.

Amazing video, I grew up in Lelystad in the late 80's without realizing how much effort has been made by so many people. They deserve we all see this video in schools to commemorate them with the respect they earn. Now living in France for 20 years, I'm happy to show this video to my teenage children so they can understand what a polder is and how it's made. Many thanks to you Robert for posting this documentary.

i live in the region where the making of the mentioned "matrasses" was part and parcel of the local economy, the men went dredging during spring and summer and in the colder months they were cutting reeds and willow shoots, also the town of Sliedrecht ( south of Rotterdam) is famous for its dredging knowhow, the bucketdredger seen in the film is now moored at the Dutch national dredging museum in this town, even today on many shipyards in this part of The Netherlands modern dredgers are still being built and the dredging industry is stiil going strong.

A time still with the Dutch Guilder, a time without smartphones, a time even without internet, a time of no problems with Black Peet, a time of socializing people, a time without terrorism. There are some good elements of those days. But also less elements, like WW2, the threat of the sea and tedious manual labor to get our land safe again. These days those things are gone. The Netherlands has become one, if not the most, technological advanced countries in the world and our expertise in water management is so well recognized that it is often called upon to apply it also in other countries which faces similar threats of flooding. Even the 'mighty' United States did call in for Dutch engineering to help out after hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. A combination of Dutch Engineering and American Muscle Power made that city also safe again. I am really proud of what my ancestors did to my country, and that this wisdom has been also applied in many other countries and we keep on going doing it. Guess who build the Palm Island at Dubai? ;-) - Any Dutch person should be really proud of being Dutch. Not only for this, but also of our hospitality, charity and helping as much other countries as well to make this entire world safer, cleaner and better for all human kind.

If Bangladesh were to do something like this, the country would be saved from climate change! I really hope this gets done. Like Netherlands back then, the sea threatens to sink Bangladesh underwater. But Bangladesh could do this faster! We have more people and dirt cheap labor!

Romantiseren zonder kennis. De overheid en de waterwerken zijn nu veel beter georganiseerd dan toen. De plannen voor het polderen in de zuiderzee waren meer dan een eeuw oud voor men er werkelijk aan begon. Wat betreft de deltawerken: de deltacomissie begon 21 februari 1953, het volledige plan was eind 1955 geschreven, en het duurde tot eind 1958 voor de bijbehorende wet door de tweede kamer was. Toen was er dus nog geen steen gelegd. De aanleg van dit alles duurde tot 1997.

The narrator as introduced in the film was Sam Bakker (his real name), an engineer with the Netherlands Water Ministry. As the film was originally made for an American audience, the producer decided to have a native English speaker read the narration. Now, the film is being enjoyed worldwide. Thank you for watching.
