My translator/friend gave me this brief translation.
I know Aquaman is an Aruba history buff.
He may be able to add more info.
74 years ago today, German U-boat 156 launched against Aruba under the command of the Third Reich. The Oranjestad and Pedernales were torpedoed and the Oranjestad sunk. The Pedernales did not. The mid section still sits in front of the Holiday Inn as a dive site. The fore and aft sections were refashioned and were used as troop transport during the Storming of Normandy. Noticialcla has some great shots.The Germans also landed a torpedo on Eagle Beach by the old refinery. Lives were lost during the attempt to disarm it.For such a small island, we had a place in WWII history.
