    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

    That is amazing, and I'm surprised to see that it is still be taken care of, for all visitors to visit.

    I had heard that a lot of WW2 German sites were not that well kept, like they were trying to hide the past.

    Thank you for sharing those pics, very much so appreciated.

    I had thought a lot of places were destroyed, like Hitlers bunker, or other places were allowed to rot away, like i said before, as if they were trying to conceal the past.
