We had the honor to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the Darr Mine Disaster in Jacobs Creek, Pennsylvania.

At Olive Branch Cemetery Consul General Ferenc Kumin along with the representatives of the Hungarian Community in Pittsburgh laid a wreath and remembered the horrific tragedy in which some 300 miners, 131 of them were Hungarian men and young boys, had perished in 19 December 1907.

The disaster proved to be the deadliest in Pittsburgh's and the second deadliest in the USA's mining history and shook the Hungarian immigrant community in the region. But as always, after the tragedy from dust and pain hope had risen and the community ventured to go on and finally flourished.
