The DDR - Revisited


The poster for the future 'Kraft durch Freude' (Strength through Joy) resort.

The artist's impression shows a huge meeting hall and one of the many dining rooms required to feed over 20,000 guests.

The building work stopped at the outbreak of WW2 and the resort was never completed.

Towards one end of one of the two 'wings' of Prora.

The immense size of the restaurant buildings can be gauged from this picture of one of the foundations.

Many of the unfinished apartments have now been modernised.

Luxury (and very expensive) apartments look out towards the beach (although now only the upper floors can actually see the sea).
