The Empty Village of Immerath in Germany

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Immerath is a small village in the Rhineland Palatinate state in western Germany.  This is the heart of Germany's coal country, which feeds the country's coal-fired power plants and supplies coking coal to the blast furnaces of its giant integrated steel mills.  In connection with the expansion of a nearby coal mine, the citizens of the village have been relocated.  Contributor Martijneier flew his drone over this ancient village, creating a surreal aerial view of a mysterious looking ghost town.
