Red Baron Photos

Post by Lawrence » 09 Feb 2003 17:28

For giggles, how about we try to find all the photos of von Richtofen? I'm not sure how many are out there, but hopefully we'll get them all. I have a few that I'll put up, please contribute! Regards!

Below are two links to death photos of Manfred von Richthofen. They were apparently taken by the Australians who recovered his body. (Don’t click if squeamish.)

1 Karl Allmenroder
2 Hans Hintsch
3 Sabastian Festner
4 Karl Emil Schafer
5 MvR
6 Kurt Wolff
7 Georg Simon
8 Otto Brauneck
9 LvR
Behind LvR, Karl Esser and Konstantin Krefft

Thank you, Damian, for the correction. The original list identifying persons from that photo was copied directly from the site on which the picture appears. (I cut and pasted it into my message.) Again, thanks, Damian, for setting the record straight. :)

i have a question on the red barons grave. i read that during the cold war it was in the no man's land between the berlin walls. has it been moved to a new location? or has the old location simply been reopened? also, are there any "richtofen's" left alive today? is there a current" baron richtofen?"
