How the Nazis enforced their pre-World War Two ideology

In part they did this through simple looking architecture

Quote:

“…The architectural style used by the Nazis delivered and enforced their ideology. Formal elements like flat roofs, horizontal extension, uniformity, and the lack of decor created “an impression of simplicity, uniformity, monumentality, solidity and eternity,” which is how the Nazi Party wanted to appear…”

This video provides colourful insight into the “strange” epoch of pre-World War Two Germany. Take a close look at the architecture in Munich and Berlin around that time.

The great WW2 German prisoner of war escape tunnel site revisited

If you have never heard about this fascinating story of war time audacity, bravery and heroism I urge you to read on.

On March 24th 1944 seventy six prisoners of war escaped from a heavily fortified German prisoners of war camp. The camp was designed to be escape proof. Hitler was furious. Unfortunately for the escapees things did not go to plan because of a survey error that meant that the exit point of the primary tunnel of three fell just short of the thick woods where it was planned to be. Three escapees made it back to England, twenty six were captured and locked up again and the remainder were executed under Hitlers orders. The tunnel names were Tom, Dick and Harry. Harry was 102 meters long. Click here if you have never heard about this history making story. This copy is taken from the original professionally posted article as cited at the end of the text.
