Intro

Was it an accident or intentional? While on this exciting tour through the Old Town of Schaffhausen, you will find out what was destroyed and how the population and the authorities coped with the consequences of the destruction caused by the bombing.

The bombing of Schaffhausen on 1 April 1944 by the Allies changed the life of an entire region within a few minutes. Large parts of the city were destroyed by some 400 incendiary and demolition bombs. The station area was destroyed as well as many of the industrial buildings. Not only were 270 people injured and 40 killed, but hundreds of jobs were also destroyed.
