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.
|The front side, facing the graves, lists the names of the dead.|
|The back reads, "For the miners who died fulfilling their duty in the Kaiserstuhl II mine on 27 December, 1897 dedicated by the ver. Westfalia Labor Union." (Den in treuer Pflichterfüllung am 27. Dezember 1897 auf Schacht Kaiserstuhl II verunglückten Bergleuten gewidmet von der Gewerkschaft ver. Westfalia.).|
The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the American Public University System. "Educating those who serve."
