During the Second World War, the entire town of Petten was broken up in 1943 by order of the German Wehrmacht because of the construction of the Atlantic Wall. The church of Petten was demolished in 1944. After the war, a new town was built starting in 1946. In the picture below the North Sea is on the left the 'new' Town of Petten on the right separated by the Hondsbossche Zeewering (Dike).
