Bombardowanie rafinerii Apollo w Bratysławie, Słowacja 1944 rok.
„Unfortunately, it was bombed on June 16, 1944. At that time, mineral oils were refined there and petrol, kerosene, paraffin, candles, Vaseline, tar and even artificial ice were produced. But during the Second World War, Nazi Germany, Slovakia’s official ally, controlled the production, and the refining of fuel and oil was used to produce fuels for their army.
American B-24 bombers dropped more than 60 tons of bombs on the Apollo refinery to cut off retreating Germans from their supplies, and while the objective was met, the imprecise nature of bombers and the bombing instruments at the time caused tremendous damage to port installations and the city as well.”Artykuł
