hannover - About 50,000 people in Hanover have to leave their homes on Sunday because five bombs from World War II are rendered harmless. Only once a city had to be evacuated on such a large scale because of old bombs.
One in ten residents of the German city has to leave his house. The buildings to be evacuated include seven nursing homes, a hospital and a tire factory. The authorities expect everyone to return home for the evening. For the inhabitants there is at least some soup.
The largest evacuation was on December 25, 2016. Then 54,000 people had to leave Augsburg home.
