  1953 - Flood disaster -The Dutch struggle against the waters.
In February 1953 the Netherlands faced disaster when the dikes protecting the southwest of the country were breached by the joint onslaught of a hurricane-force northwesterly wind and exceptionally high spring tides.
Immediately after the devastating storm surge of 1953, a Delta Commission was appointed to advise the government on the necessary works to protect the south-western part of the country.
This provides for the major rivers transecting the Netherlands to be given greater freedom to spill out across some parts of their traditional floodplains, while the height of the dikes controlling them is increased elsewhere.

  CIA in Iran, Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh in trial by the Shah in 1953
By the summer of 1953, the British and American governments initiated a joint Anglo-American plan for the covert overthrow of Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh, the Prime Minister of Iran.
The decision was made in June 1953 to replace Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh with General Fazlollah Zahedi; one of those arrested in February 1953 on charges of plotting to overthrow the nationalist government.
In accordance with the plan, on August 16, 1953, the Shah violated the Iran's Monarchy Constitution and dismissed Dr. Mossadegh and his nationalist cabinet without the parliament's approval and appointed General Fazlollah Zahedi as the new Prime Minister.

 IALHI News Service: East-German Uprising of 1953   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The East German crisis of 1953, climaxing in the June uprising, was first and foremost an existential crisis for the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and its regime headed by the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED).
If Moscow or the SED spoke of German unification in 1953, it was because of what Stalin had told Ulbricht and friends at the end of their final meeting in 1952: "You should continue propaganda for German unity in the future.
The crisis of 1953 was a serious one for the Soviet bloc, but it also showed how firm the dividing lines in Europe and Germany had become since the end of World War II.

 Glasgow Citizens Theatre - "1953"
What Raine does is to transpose the story of Andromaque, the capured widow of the Trojan hero Hector to Rome in the year 1953.
Except that this 1953 is in a parallel universe, where there has been an Axis victory in the second world war.
Raine's flinty, agile poetry, a fluent mix of contrasting metre, ingenious rhyming, regional variations and fruity slang, is ignited by the concentration of the performances, which are notably led by Greg Hicks as the emotionally unstable Orestes, a callously impulsive Nazi general.

 HERMENAUT: The Club Havana Secret History of Cinema: 1953
Luckily, another kind of movie was emerging in 1953 to counter the effects of all this heavy grotesque stuff.
The second feature-length film by one of the greatest directors, this is a study of disturbed, violent, alienated youth in three episodes, one set in Italy, one in France, one in England.
Probably the film has things in common both with the clinical tone of Antonioni's 1953 short "Attempted Suicides" (part of the omnibus film Love in the City) and with the eerily removed melodrama of his beguiling third feature, The Lady without Camelias (also 1953), about the pointless, empty life of a beautiful movie star.

The Secretary of State held in his hand a plan of operation to overthrow the prime minister of Iran prepared by Kermit (Kim) Roosevelt of the CIA.
The standard "textbook" account of what took place in Iran in 1953 is that-whatever else one might say for or against the operation-the United States saved Iran from a Soviet/Communist takeover.
Kennett Love wrote that he believed that CIA officer George Carroll, whom he knew personally, worked with General Farhat Dadsetan, the new military governor of Teheran, "on preparations for the very efficient smothering of a potentially dangerous dissident movement emanating from the bazaar area and the Tudeh in the first two weeks of November, 1953".
