Wandsbek – The evacuation started at 5 pm at the most beautiful time after work. But had to be – because who likes to live longer than necessary in a bomb-like way?
The deacon of the Second World War was found yesterday at 13:05 in an xy on the Brauhausstraße in the middle of the bustling Wandsbek. 140×60 meters construction site, behind the ram was the bomb.
1000 US pounds (454 kilos) of steel and explosives, dropped 75 years ago during the firestorm. She lay in the ground unnoticed for so long. When something like that is inflated, it makes everything flat.
Therefore, within a radius of 300 meters around the place, the 1060 residents in the restricted area had to leave their home, they were temporarily housed in an emergency shelter in the Matthias-Claudius Gymnasium.
Shops (including the Quarree) closed, twelve bus lines in the affected area traffic, around the area of Brauhausstraße formed miles of traffic jams! The Wandsbeker Quarre was closed.
At 19 o'clock, then, Burkhardt Mantsch (59) and his team broke down with defusing him.
