Thanks for posting Nuno some very interesting locations , i didn't realise the FLAK Towers were still standing in Hamburg
The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Very interesting, thanks for sharing. A pleasant suprise seeing the Flak tower photos as I was under the impression that this huge type was all destroyed after the war. I would love to take a walk inside. They are HUGE!
my pleasure, actually there are still 2 flak towers left in hamburg, the 2nd one is located in willhemsburg, a very bad place to be, What most people call "turkish territory" lots os robberys, gang fights,etc..
That was the main reason why we didnt go there.
Later on i will continue to post photos of neuengamme camp.
