Johann Taendler
FIO02 bavaria

Deggendorf, Bavaria
June 2013

Johann Taendler is photographed in front of his home in Deggendorf. At this point parts of the city were completely under water after nearby dykes broke in the flooding that devastated many river communities along the Danube that week. Tens of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes, and there were at least a dozen deaths across Germany. For Germany the disaster costs may be the highest ever recorded in the country's history.
