Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie
These pictures were taken on 8 June, 2007 in the eastern cemetery (Ostfriedhof) in Dortmund. It was getting dark and I did not have a tripod, so the pictures started to blur.
|Each of the dead miners got an iron marker with his name and date of birth.|
|The front reads, "For the miners who died fulfilling their duty in the Kaiserstuhl I mine on 19 August, 1893 dedicated by the ver. Westfalia Labor Union." (Den in treuer Pflichterfüllung am 19. August 1893 auf Schacht Kaiserstuhl I verunglückten Bergleuten gewidmet von der Gewerkschaft ver. Westfalia.)|
|The text on the back is identical.|
The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the American Public University System. "Educating those who serve."
