Cemetery section for victims of Nazis in the main cemetery in Dortmund

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on 8 June, 2007 in the main cemetery (Hauptfriedhof) in Dortmund.

It is an unassuming section of the cemetery, typical for these sites.
The stone reads, "Here lie 89 victims of the political system of the years 1933-1945. Peace!." (Hier ruhen 89 Opfer des politischen Systems der Jahre 1933-1945. Friede!)
This stone memorializing one person, probably one of the people buried here, is placed off to one side. Leo Miedzinski, 1903-1939.

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