Misfortune in Ottenbüttel
In February 1943, a farm in Ottenbüttel burned to the ground. The gable wall of the house remained standing. On February 7th, a large group of children took shelter behind this wall during a sudden snowstorm. The gable collapsed due to a gust of wind, killing nine children and injuring others. At the church in Hohenaspe there is a memorial stone with the names of those killed, which commemorates the accident.
