  • Description

    At a Protestant church in Wuppertal, West Germany, aug 11, 44-year-old Harald won Bohlen and Halbach - brother of Alfried Krupp, the German steel magnate - married Doerte Hillringhaus, 26-year-old manufacturer's daughter and former medical student.

    Undaunted by driving rain, hundreds of people from Wuppertal and Essen - where Krupps have their huge iron and steel combine - gathered outside the church to catch a glimpse of the city's "Bride of the Year". More than 1,000 guests attended the reception at a local hotel.

    The church wedding took place one day after a civil ceremony at Wuppertal City Hall. It is Harald von Bohlen's second marriage. Released from a Russian prison camp only five years ago, he owns part of a well-known West German chemical concern.
