1944 - 1945. Hunger Winter in Amsterdam. The Hunger Winter started on September 17, 1944 when rail workers went on strike to stop the German occupier, who then punished them by putting a hold on all maritime transport. This cut off all food and fuel delivery to the west and north of the Netherlands. More than 20,000 people lost their lives during the winter of 1944-1945.

Dutch children are provided with bread and soup during the Hongerwinter (“Hunger Winter”) famine of 1944-1945. Towards the end of the war, food supplies became increasingly scarce in the Netherlands. Some 4.5 million Dutch citizens were affected by the famine; about 22,000 died as a result. Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. November 1944. Image taken by Cas Oorthuys.
