Baden Marathon 2005: Kilometer 31

The race route headed out passed the old American airfield, against a stiff wind that chilled the bone (despite the sunny weather, the temperature did not rise much during the race). I passed the 31K and approached the city again.

The US Military Community of Karlsruhe was established on July 8, 1945. At its peak the military community spanned three German administrative districts: the Northern part of Baden, the Southern part of Baden reaching the Swiss border and the Palatinate. Since September 1995 the community is but a memory in the community.

What is left? Housing space for over 7,000 people, barracks and real estate, a considerable American Library (now integrated into the Karlsruhe Municipal Library) and thousands of personal relationships, memories of “Little America” in Karlsruhe.
