Child in time




A journey through time, told by six children who experienced critical events in the last century of Holland. History as it has never been told before.


  • The flood disaster of Zeeland (1953). The southwest of Holland gets flooded by an enormous tidal wave. Klaartje tells us the story of this terrible flood disaster.

  • My mother is a hippy (1970). Bloem has her hands full with her hippy mother during the first popfestival in The Netherlands.
  • The Italian (1960). Riekje tells about the first immigrant workers in Twente, who are not appreciated by the Dutch since they’re trying to hog the local girls.
