'Bye Johannes, have a safe trip' - about a whale that washed up on the Dutch shore.
The whale was given the name Johannes.
In that same week a dead spermwhale washed up on the same shore next to Johannes. There were a lot of rescue workers and even the Dutch navy came to help get the whale back into the ocean. They even tried to euthanize the whale with an injection but he wasn't ready to die. They closed off the beach and said the whale must be left alone, because there was nothing they could do to save him.
The Whale died, after laying on the sandbank for six days.
The Dutch people are very angry with the government: there must have been a way to prevent the whale from dying, the government didn't try hard enough.
This Illustration is a tribute to the whale and it tells his sad story.
