Nico van der Woude, conservator of Historic Interiors at SRAL, talks about the conservation at Fort benoorden Spaarndam.
The fortress contains more than 230 mural drawings made by Dutch and German soldiers during the First and Second World Wars. Over the years, the fortress was used in many ways. Each layer of drawings tells a story about the function and use of the building. The conservation that was supervised by Van der Woude and executed in collaboration with students from the University of Amsterdam and volunteers from the Krayenhoff Foundation Spaarndam took place in 2020.
