Hi, I subbed the Dutch parts of the interview Ylvis have with the Dutch comedian. This time I added the subs to my YouTube file, because my subbing program didn’t work like I wanted it to, so you have to turn on the subs in the YoutTube video. Enjoy part ½, the other part is uploaded as well, and praat nederlands met mij!

Johanna Westerdijk

Plant pathologist Johanna Westerdijk was born on January 4, 1883 in Nieuwer-Amstel, Netherlands. Westerdijk greatly expanded the collection of the Central Bureau of Fungus Cultures, a collection of fungi meant to be distributed to researchers. This achievement has enriched our collective knowledge of botany and helped discover treatments for plant diseases. Westerdijk was also the first woman in the Netherlands to become a professor.

Johanna Westerdijk died in 1961 at the age of 78.
