Southborough: “A Brief History of the Hindenburg” presentation

April 28, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

April 28, at 2 p.m., the Southborough Historical Society will host “A Brief History of the Hindenburg,” a presentation by Paul Doucette and Amy DeWitt.? 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% of the people onboard survived the crash? Hear this and more stories at this presentation. The event takes place at the Museum on 25 Common St. (located behind Southborough's Pilgrim Church). Admission is free and all are invited. Members are also invited to be there for 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 at www.southboroughhistory.com.
