Fallen for the cause of the free
This is a highly specialized tour born out of my desire to ensure that the men who have fallen in the liberation of the world from Nazi Germany will never be forgotten!
We are focusing on a small area of the Blackforest, the Kinzigtal. After a coffee / tea at the Best Western Hotel Victoria we will be travelling North to the KInzigtal. Our first stop will be a typical Blackforest farm house. The farm belongs to a family who has lived through WW II and has first hand experience of life in those days. I call this part “Life on the Homefront”. From there we travel to Haslach where we will explore the differences between WWI and WW II in the Blackforest.
After a traditional three-course Blackforest lunch in a restaurant, which has seen much more history than “just” two World Wars we head to the momorial of the labour camp of Haslach. Here we will learn how much evilness has been inflicted in the Blackforest; but we will also hear stories of kindness of the civilian population.
Finally, almost on our way back we will visit the place where the “pinklady” was shot down in 1944. This visit is part of the chapter “Liberation of the Blackforest”.
