Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie
These pictures were taken on 8 June, 2007 in the main cemetery (Hauptfriedhof) in Dortmund. Knapsack-Griesheim Corporation is described in one source as an oxygin factory, but I can't find any information about the nature of the accident. There were 15 people killed.
|The stone reads "In honoring memory of the victims of the accident of January 4, 1961. Knapsack-Griesheim Corporation." (Im ehrenden Gedenken an die Opfer des Unglücks vom 4. Januar 1961. Knapsack-Griesheim Aktiengesellschaft.)|
The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the American Public University System. "Educating those who serve."
