So it's November 27th again, which is the anniversary of Operation Tigerfish: 75 years ago now, the Royal Air Force bombed out the city of , destroying much of the city centre (except the cathedral), and killing 2800 residents.
There were only two air raids on Freiburg during WW2 - one earlier in the war by a German bomber group that misnavigated and took the town for their target, and this one.


Oh, I somehow missed the section about several smaller bomb attacks in the linked Wikipedia article, so maybe "only two well remembered attacks" would have been the better wording...
