Southborough Historical Society to present Hindenburg talk April 28
Everyone may know about the tragic end of the Hindenburg which occurred 76 years ago on May 6, but did you know the Hindenburg was the largest man-made object ever put into the sky? That she had a nearly identical sister who spied on Britain and Czechoslovakia just prior to WWII? That she was planned to have non-flammable helium which would have prevented the tragedy, but the U.S. had a monopoly on it and refused to sell to a militant Germany? And that 64 percent of the people on board survived the crash? Hear this and more stories at this presentation, which will be held at the Museum at 25 Common St., located behind the Pilgrim Church.
Admission is free and all are invited. Members are also invited to be there at 1:30 p.m. for Annual Elections and a society business meeting, immediately followed by the presentation at 2 p.m. More information is available in the calendar section of the Southborough Historical Society's site at www.southboroughhistory.com.
