    Episode 53: Winschoten

    First aired: Thursday, 26 November 2015 at 17.32 hours

    What do the words Mill City, tellerlikker and Sodom have in common? These are all names for (residents of) Winschoten where we take a look in today’s episode of In Beeld.

    The city of Winschoten functions as a center within the municipality of Oldambt. At the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth century it developed as a true commercial city, which had a large Jewish community. From this community stems the nickname "Sodommers” They thought the Winschoters lived dissolute lives. The Second World War is a black page in the history of the city. After 1945 the city’s Jewish community was completely eliminated.

    Winschoten has a well-known annual fair, called Adrillen. The All Saints' market takes place on the first Monday of November. A week later there’s another smaller fair, called Leutje Adrillen. The market attracts between 80 000 and 100 000 visitors.

    Roos takes a look at shopping center 't Rond and walkes in the large City Park. She questions the ‘tellerlikkers’ she encounters about living in Winschoten.
