Direction Bottrop-Kirchhellen. An appointment at the last German coalmine: Prosper Haniel. My guide to go underground is Detlev. I am authorised to take pictures at the changing of the shifts. The atmosphere is relaxed. Outside the mine everybody is smoking and talking about the mineworkers life, that soon will end. A young miner offers me a piece of coal as souvenir. The men seem to have accepted their faith.
