Stavenisse Bunkers Atlantikwall

Floods

The floods of 1953 revealed that the bunkers which the Germans had built in or on the dikes had undermined the solid construction of the dikes. Particularly in those places the dikes were broken through, and the power of the water even moved the concrete giants. These bunkers have all been demolished. This was the reason to remove the bunkers from later dike reinforcements in other places such as Gorishoek and Sint-Annaland.
