Memorial to Founder of Volunteer Fire Department in Karlsruhe/Durlach

Picture and text by Mark R. Hatlie

This picture was taken on 25 March, 2006, in Durlach, which is now part of Karlsruhe. I stumbled accross it while looking for something else.

The plaque reads, "Thankfully dedicated to the deserving founder of the first volunteer fire department Christian Hengst by the German firefighting corps and his home community of Durlach / 1846-1896".
