Hey folks and friends.

In a time when Barry and Alex are leaving i tried to convinve myself that additional time on this forum might be necessary. Although i see that there is much information provided from many users here and the forum ist running great i thought it might be just a good addition.

I must admin that i cannot invest that time at this moment. Furthermore i am not sure if you have seen the pics about the catastrophy in Duisburg, germany. I attended the event and got lucky as i passed this ramp/tunnel just 30 mins before. For all that lack information:

In the next few weeks i will spend less time here so i can invest more time to my own studies.

In commemoration to 19 dead humans from all over the world.

Take care!

Studies are way more important. If we get stuck or miss something hopefully you can still help out. :)

Just one question. What was the reason for the stampede in the first place?

Nobody knows.
14 people fell to death while they were climbing. I am not sure how the other 5 died.

There is a very right-wing extremist woman in germany called "Eva Hermann". She said that '[...] the Loveparade is a event consiting of drugs and sex. God wanted to show that this is not allowed. Those 19 people died to prove that.'

I remain stunned.

Stunned? Because this Eva is off her med's or that the media publishes it? ;)

I assume both.

I just hope the people have a level head about them. There used to be another extremist in Germany in the thirties and forties that started WW2. Once one (an extremist) gets a foothold it can spread like wildfire...especially for those that are more disenfranchised.

I thought the LoveParade was about peace and music...

The Loveparade was about peace and music. There will be no Loveparade in the future.

Scepterman,
i am pretty sure that most people here learned from the history. Maybe more than some other countries.

This is true but remember the old adage that states "that history has a way of repeating itself". It's a shame there won't be one in the future. I'm sure that if the people voice their desire loud enough it may return again. Good luck wih your studies. Don't be gone to long.

Some minutes before the stampede. This is in the direction of the shorter tunnel. The longer (200m) is behind me.

Oh man.!.!.! That looks like disaster waiting to strike.
Did they have anyone regulating the flow thru those tunnels?

There were 20 Gates on both sides. All of them were opened. The situation at the gates was even worse.

Tomorrow morning will a remembrance service take place. If you are religious you may want to send prayers to the survining members of the families that lost their child but also to those that lost friends or just participated.

The service will take place at 11 am Middle European Time (GMT+1, +1 for daylight saving time). If you are interested and cannot sleep (i know that this is somewhere at night for you) have a look at http://programm.daserste.de/pages/programm/detail.aspx?id=BFB48A10C278D33CEB13AE8FFE5147AC (click on "Live in der Mediathek" and a new window will pop up)
