‘Legionella… een ramp!’ (Legionnaires’ disease… a tragedy!)

Ten years after the tragedy at the flower festival in Bovenkarspel, the Netherlands, Sanny de Zoete (who become infected during a holiday in Corfu in 2005) and Wouter de Jong (employee of the Dutch Society of Mayors’ crisis control department) tried to put faces to the victims, in their book ‘Legionella… een ramp!’. Surviving relatives, family members and victims tell their stories, as well as a number of experts, including Mrs Borst (former Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport) and Mr Dr Peter van der Velden of the Dutch Institute for Psychotrauma (Instituut voor Psychotrauma). Often moving, sometimes uplifting.
