These islands are not through levees protected and therefore exposed to the forces of nature. Solidarity action in the fight against the sea is paramount for the inhabitants of the island.
Each island is a small world of its own. The smallest school in the Federal Republic was built for the 23 residents of Nordstrandischmoor.
