Architechture


Architektur des Schreckens I, Prora, Rügen

A gruesome example of Nazi-Germany's excesses. Built between 1936 and 1939 as an almost 5 kilometer long holiday resort for 20 000 aryans under the so called KdF (Kraft durch Freude - Strenght Through Joy) program at the seaside village of Prora. The start of the war saw an end to the project and the complex was never used for its intended purpose.
