The DDR - Revisited


The symbol of Lübeck (and marzipan chocolates) - The Holstentor.

The Market Place and historic Town Hall......note the more modern structure on the LHS.

Lübeck was massively damaged in March 1942.
This attack was planned as a response to criticism concerning the accuracy/effectiveness of Bomber Command.

Details of St Mary's Church.

An aerial view of the old city with modern buildings giving an indication as to the amount of destruction inflicted in March 1942.

Lübeck and its nearby docks were never attacked again as the Red Cross used the port to bring food parcels to British PoWs held in German camps.
