Today in History - May 6: On this day in 1937, the hydrogen-filled German dirigible Hindenburg burned and crashed in Lakehurst, N.J., killing 35 of the 97 people on board and a Navy crewman on the ground. In 1889, the Paris Exposition formally opened, featuring the just-completed Eiffel Tower. And in 1941, dictator Josef Stalin assumed the Soviet premiership, replacing Vyacheslav M. Molotov.
