History of Noordoostpolder

 

Noordoostpolder is a very special area with a rich history.

In the midst of World War II Noordoostpolder was drained, prepared and developed within very short time. According to official records, the polder fell dry on 9 September 1942. It came to life by the hard manual labour of many (pioneer) workers who hoped to build a better life for themselves in Noordoostpolder. So the history of Noordoostpolder is relatively recent. Nevertheless, it has some impressive stories to tell. You are most welcome!
