Episode 20: The 2010 Love Parade disaster

The video made by event organizers detailing the events leading up to the disaster and featuring a great deal of CCTV footage.

Concert footage of the closing line-up for Love Parade including artists Tiesto, Monika Kruse, and Tiefswartz. According to the footage and the schedule, Tiesto took the stage at 5:00 PM. As this footage is being taken, people are dying on the ramp. (NSFW warning for some shirtless shots of women in the crowd.)

This German documentary focuses on the aftermath of the disaster but particularly on Duisburg mayor Adolf Sauerland and the parents of victim Fabian Seitz. (This video does not have subtitles so you will need to use YouTube Translate, which is — to say the least — not the best translation tool.)

This article written in the days after the disaster lists the victims and what was known of them at that point.
