The DDR - Revisited


One of the tunnel entrances into the underground production works.

The entranceway after being captured by the US Army.

Inside the tunnel complex there is a model showing the extend of the works.

Parts of a V2 missile engine. In the background you can see that the tunnel is blocked at this point.

Large open spaces that would have been occupied by workers .

The detritus of V2 production.....a large number of nosecones.

Photographs taken by the US Army after capturing the site.

A long row of V2 engines in production.

Nordhausen is more than just the tunnels.......a large new education centre explains the complete story.

The Concentration Camp had its own crematorium......this landscaped area was once a slope of ash from the ovens.

The plan gives you an idea of the scale of the complex.
