i will start this series of the defenceworks at Kornwerderzand with a map of Holland that explains the meaning of it ... the afsluitdijk was closed in 1932 ...a monument is placed on that closing spot ! ... to prevent any enemy to enter Holland by passing the dike, defenceworks where created at both ends of the dike ... at the eastside near Kornwerderzand a museum is created in some of the 17 kazemats ...so the next series will be about that !!
first view at the kazemats ...very interresting history here ..i will tell about that later !
