09 Holland Holland, No more is the comfort and clumsiness, the picturesque folk customs and seek the country, Holland today is poor and hungry...
The Holland maritime nation had once proud ships, most modern shipyards, perfectly landscaped ports. Today the shipyards are desolate, blocked ports, ship and materials are only dead lump of shredded iron... Holland has challenged this destruction through anything. As a country that is peace-loving and innocent, it was invaded, destroyed and looted.
In these power plants, factories, industrial plants were high-quality machines. The machines were taken... and in many cases not only the machines: whole building production facilities and assembly halls were removed. Only the foundations were the Dutch.
In centuries of hard work, Holland had defeated the elemental of water and made a helper of working people. The enemy unleashed the chore of gebändigten flooding: reclaimed fertile land, the oceans, sea is again: channels, the lifelines of Holland, were flooded, the dams broken, destroyed the locks. The enemy was forced to flee - but his deadly inheritance remained.
This factory produced fertilizers, which 1 1/2 million tons of potatoes annually secured the Dutch nutrition. the whole factory was transferred to Germany. Holland is starving.
This was once the station of Scheveningen. A Dutch passenger train looks today.
In the cities, the image is friendly. The road starts to revive: a few trams... for the purpose of power saving with many followers... A few vehicles and many pedestrians... lots of bicycles. Bikes of every imaginable kind and variety... including A lot that do all honor the inventiveness of their owners. This is a bike - and it even works! This is the bleaker side of the city, whose residents lacking most. Who has a few shoes capable of mending, have to wait for months on the repair. 6 years no new clothes, no shoes - and now precious brands must be returned for repair of hardly portable scraps.
During the German occupation, the population had the struggle with hunger. Even now, the food situation is serious, although foods from England and America arrive. Every Dutch receives a week's supply of 4 pounds bread... and 4 pounds potatoes. In addition, there are 3/4 pounds of fat and some sugar, chocolate and biscuits. Meat in cans and everything - even the salt - only is strictly rationed.
But also for rationed food, you need money and fuel. Many people do not have both. Community kitchens were established for this daily to give them a warm meal. It consists primarily of potatoes - and that means new brand delivery.
Who belongs to the lucky few who have even a stove and some firewood — he is one of his pieces of wood such as gems. It is still good because this old woman: she has grandchildren who go for it on the get Zauche. Wood - almost the only fuel of the country - is currently the most valuable goods of Holland. And so as the children must collect it for the grandmother, the nurses must do it for your hospital.
Because the hospitals sindüberfüllt... fully with the victims of years of malnutrition. Tuberculosis rages... and many other diseases that are descended from 1940 of this earlier health-packed people.
The children of Holland grew up hungry and joyless. You have the right to a better and happier future.

09. Holland to-day
Holland is no longer the country of easy-going comfort and geniality, of colourful customs and costumers. Holland to-day is poor and hungry.
The maritime nation Holland once had proud ships, modern buildings yards, model ports. To-day the yards are derelict, the ports blocked, ships and equipment a tangled mass of useless wreckage. Holland has done nothing to provoke this destruction. A peaceful and peaceloving country, it was attacked, destroyed and plundered. These power plants, factories, industrial works contained valuable machinery. The machines were looted ... and often not only the machines: whole buildings and complete workshops were removed ... leaving only the foundations to the Dutch.
In centuries of toil Holland had tamed the menace of water into a servant of man. The enemy unleashed the violent floods again: rich pastures, won from the sea, are sea again; canals, Holland's lifelines, are blocked, her dykes blown, her locks destroyed. The enemy was put to flight; but he left his deal legacy behind him.
This plant produced fertilizer, worth one and half million tons of potatoes for Holland winter. The entire factory was carried off to Germany. Holland starves.
This is what is left of Scheveningens railway station. And this is what a passenger train looks like in Holland today.
In the towns the picture is slightly more cheerful. Street traffic begins to revive: a few tramcars - with several trailers to save fuel ... a few vehicles, plenty of pedestrians ... and bicycles. Bicycles of every form and shape ... many of them doing an honour to the ingenuity of their riders.
That, too, is a bicycle and ... it works.
This is, the darker side of the large town whose inhabitants lack most essentials. Who still possesses a pair of shoes worth repairing has to wait months for their retunr. No new clothing of footwear for 6 years - and now precious coupons must be parted with even for the repair of rage hardly worth patching.
Througout the German occupation the Dutch had to fight starvation. Eben now their plight is grave when supplied are reaching them form England and America. Every Duchtman receives a weekly ration of four pounds of bread ... and four pounds of potatoes. Besides 3/4 lb. of fats, and a little sugar, chocolate and biscuits. Meat only tinned and everything ... even salt ... is severely rationed.
But even rationed foods must be paid for and cooked. And many have neither money nor fuel. For these people communal kitchens have been installed providing one hot meal a day. It's mainly potatoes.. and that means mor coupons.
The few lucky ones who have a stove and some fuel count their sticks like diamonds. Incidentally, this old lady is lucky since she has grandchildren who can help her solve the fuel problem.
Wood to-day is one of Holland's most precious commodities. And just as the youngsters must find it for Grandma, so must nurses find it for their hospitals. For the hospitals are full ... overcrowded with the victims of years of malnutrition. Tuberculosis rages.. and other diseases which since 1940 have reaged this once so sound and healthy nation.
Hollands children grew up starving and joyless. They have a claim to a better and happier future.
Deep silence reigned for a month in the North African townships. It was the period of Ramadam, the time of penitence and fasting.
Now, the mosques of Tunis announce the beginning of great religious festivities.
The representatives of the French Government take part ...
... and the native rulers.
Food is distributed everywhere for the law of the Coran demands that also the poor must share in the joys of the festival. But here, too, food is scarce and everybody must show his or her passport to ensure a fair distribution.
In Algier a colourful pageant marks the end of the festivities.
