Hi Sturm,
The first one is Polish or Tsjech.
The second is most probably Hochwald.

Both photos are on Maginot Line fortifications. The top photo is of an unfinished STG casemate; location unknown. The second is an artillery block of Gros Ouvrage Hochwald near Wissembourg.

Jose85 is right. On Sturm78's photo is probably czechoslovak casemate - extracted turret but no combat damage also indicates czechoslovak origin. Though I can not recognize which one it is.

The photo posted by Jose85 is the rear of a Rhine casemate. The entrance to the casemate is on the left. The entrance on the right is to a shelter built by the crew of the casemate.
