We must leave!
"We have lived for centuries on our small island Schokland in the Zuiderzee, doing our daily fishing and handcraft. We are a few small villages, with churches in the centre. But terrible floods are threatening us always, and now, in 1859, our government wants us to leave. Only a few people are allowed to stay behind to work at the lighthouse. We have lost our fight against the water."
