Memorial to those killed in the 1948 accident in the "Caroline" mine

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on 10 June, 2007 in the main cemetery in Bochum.

The main stone reads, "For our labor comrades of the Caroline mine / 31 May 1948 / Harpener Mining Corporation."
The individual grave markers show the full name and birthday.

The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the
American Public University System.
"Educating those who serve."
