Great to see this list! It makes your wonderful blog even easier to use. Thanks!

Patrick Russell said...

Sure thing, Dan! I'd been planning to do it for awhile, rather than just have the page open with the articles.

I'll soon have mug shots up for the crew list as well.

Vic said...

I've been on this site for an hour. Amazingly well done. Thank you for providing this information.

Patrick Russell said...

It's my pleasure. I'm glad you're enjoying the site.

There sure are some interesting stories among all these people, and fortunately not all of those stories end tragically.

I dont see any women passenger isee just a few womens

Patrick Russell said...

Hi Alif,

There were seven female passengers aboard the final Hindenburg flight (Gertrud Adelt, Matilde Doehner, Irene Doehner, Elsa Ernst, Marie Kleemann, Margaret Mather and Emma Pannes) as well as Emilie Imhof, the stewardess.

Why weren't there more women aboard? Well, for one thing, a lot of the people who bought tickets to fly on the Hindenburg were businessmen who were taking advantage of the Hindenburg's speed across the ocean - two and a half to three days from Germany to New York, rather than five days on an ocean liner. And, of course, back in 1937 a much larger percentage of business travelers tended to be men.

Other than that, I really don't have an answer as to why there weren't more female passengers on that last Hindenburg flight.

I'm a 17 year old girl and I L O V E this article. I love learning about history and reading up on these people! Thank you so much for posting this information!

Patrick Russell said...

You're very welcome! I'm glad you found the site. I have been interested in and studying Zeppelin history since I was nine, and of course this led me to an interest in history in general. One thing I've found is that, for me at least, the most compelling thing about this and any other kind of history is the people and their stories.

Enjoy, and be well!

On this date 6 May 1937, I was six years old. My father and I drove from New York area to Lakehurst, to meet the Hinderburg, to pick up a passenger. The car was parked on a road facing the front of the Zeppelin. When the ship exploded, my father pushed me to the ground and underneath the running board of the car. I didn't see anything, except for the yelling, crying and screaming. When it was over, we drove back home, no passenger. I never knew who we were suppose to pick up. He didn't say. To day is the first time I checked this passenger list. But no name popped out to me.

Patrick Russell said...

Hi Laura,

Wow... that must have been a terrifying experience, not just because of the horrible thing that was occurring, but also the fact that you weren't seeing any of it and were just hearing all the horror and confusion of the adults around the car.

Even though you never got a name, I wonder if we might do a bit of detective work and get some idea of which passenger your father may have been there to pick up. Why don't you drop me an email at and let's see what we can do.


Halra said...

Good to see this list!
useful for me specially,
thanks friend!!

Mic Healey said...

Wow. Very interesting to see the faces and the names of the actual passengers. I am sure this was a tonne of research to put all this together. Thank you so very kindly for all your effort here. I, like you, have been interested in rigid airships for many years and have several fine books on the subject matter. The Graf was my fav. Hey, I was quite surprised to see Col. Fritz Erdmann. In that pic, he looks rather like George C. Scott (of course, Col. Franz Ritter in the Hindenburg movie). Was he doing the same job, I wonder... I still love watching that movie, a bet you do too! Kind Regards, ~ Mic

Chuck Sherrill, Library Director said...

I just finished reading Ariel Lawhon's fascinating novel about the Hindenburg, "Flight of Dreams." She gives kudos to your website for helping her develop the fictional characters out of the actual people on board. Great site - thanks! And those who are interested will enjoy this new novel as well.

Unknown said...

I too just finished reading Fligbt of Dreams. Loved hiw she brought the characters to life. Did you and Laura ever figure out which passenger they were supposed to pick up?

Sorry if off topic, but I'm looking for the passenger list [and any other information] of the PENULTIMATE flight, which I believe was from Brazil to Europe. I'm trying to locate a family by the name of Davies who I believe to have been on that flight. Any pointers or suggestions would be very welcome.

ویلچر یک نوع ابزار کمکی و حمل و نقل برای افرادی است که نیاز به پشتیبانی در حرکت دارند و از ناتوانی یا محدودیت‌های جسمی رنج می‌برند. ویلچر‌ها عمدتاً برای افراد معلول، که ممکن است نتوانایی حرکتی در پاها یا قدم زدن داشته باشند، طراحی و استفاده می‌شوند.
این ابزارها به صورت چرخدار یا غیر چرخدار (مانند ویلچر‌های الکتریکی) موجود هستند. ویلچر‌های چرخدار با چرخ‌های عقبی بزرگ و چرخ‌های جلویی کوچک طراحی شده‌اند تا بهترین تعادل و پیشرفت را در سطح آسان‌ترین سطوح ممکن فراهم کنند. ویلچر‌های الکتریکی، با استفاده از باتری و موتور، امکان حرکت بدون تلاش کاربر را فراهم می‌کنند.
ویلچر‌ها اغلب از جنس‌های مقاوم و سبک ساخته می‌شوند تا کاربران بتوانند به راحتی از آن‌ها استفاده کنند و همچنین حمل و نقل آسان‌تری داشته باشند. برخی از ویلچر‌ها دارای صندلی‌های پرنشین‌هستند که کاربر می‌تواند روی آن نشسته و با استفاده از دستگیره‌ها و پدال‌ها، ویلچر را جلو و عقب حرکت دهد.
ویلچر‌ها یکی از ابزارهای اساسی در ارتقاء راحتی و استقلال افراد معلول و ناتوان هستند و به آن‌ها امکان شرکت در فعالیت‌ها و انجام وظایف روزانه را بدون وابستگی به دیگران می‌دهند.

However, the catastrophic events of May 6, 1937, will always highlight the Hindenburg's place in history. The airship caught fire and burst into flames as it attempted to land at the Naval Air Station Lakehurst in New Jersey. Regrettably, 36 of the 97 passengers perished in the terrible mishap. This tragic incident, which was documented in newsreels and famous photos, essentially brought an end to the era of passenger airship flying........ evidence for protective order virginia

Acusado de Domestic Violence en Nueva JerseyThis review provides a detailed account of the passengers aboard LZ 129 Hindenburg, a famous airship. The author skillfully weaves together facts and anecdotes to create a vivid portrayal of the passengers' backgrounds, aspirations, and experiences. The review captures the ambiance of the time, offering a nuanced perspective on the social dynamics among passengers. It serves as a poignant reminder of the human cost of the Hindenburg disaster and its impact on the lives of those aboard. The inclusion of lesser-known details about individual passengers adds a layer of intimacy to the review, transforming it from a historical account to a human-interest story. The review provides a thoughtful exploration of the passengers' lives before the tragic events unfolded, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of this historical episode.

Taking off on the LZ 129 Hindenburg was an incredible experience that combined luxury and exploration. The airship's enormous size was astounding, and the journey provided amazing views of the surroundings. The attentive staff on board provided flawless service, attending to every need. The common areas had a sophisticated charm, and the accommodations were cozy. The dining experience, with its exquisite meals served against the constantly changing sky, was the high point, though. The memories made on the Hindenburg, which captured a brief period of opulence in aviation history, are indelible even after the trip's tragic conclusion.
