67 years ago …

… my hometown looked like this.

On the 22nd of March 1945 Hildesheim was completely destroyed by allied bombardmends.

  1. I lived in Pforzheim for a few months back in 2007. I was there for the anniversary of the town being flattened by the RAF. I got some funny looks that week, when people heard me talk.

  2. The whole bombardmend took no longer than ten minutes, dropping more than 1000 tons of bombs. Today every churchbell throughout the city will ring for exactly those ten minutes. It's an opressive feeling every year.
