Prora Nazi Holiday Resort 2, Rugen
Rügen
Here you can see the largest construction that the Third Reich were working on in the 1930's. Robert Ley was the mastermind behind this nearly 5km-long complex of buildings, built under the auspices of Kraft durch Freude (KdF - Strength Through Joy) workers association, part of the Deutsche Arbeits Front (DAF). These complexes of buildings were intended to house up to 20,000 people - average german workers - providing them a view of the sea, 5 x 2.5 meter rooms with 2 beds, and armoire, and a sink (communal toilets and showers). You can read more about it here: http://www.thirdreichruins.com/prora.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prora

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
