I couldn't agree more! I certainly don't know what to make of that platform sticking up above the ground, with the Führerbunker supposedly deep below it... Contemporary comments and photos showed that area to be covered with topsoil, so why do we now see the rise of a platform -- the roof of the bunker?? -- sticking up from the surrounding ground??

Good evening friends,

I made a study about the Reichssicherheitsdienst Dienstelle 1 for the timeframe April 22nd - May 2nd 1945 and, knowing this Dienststelle was responsible for the security of HITLER, evidently the Reichskanzlei and the bunker were involved.

The picture with the concrete slab, prepared for demolition, shows the roof of the Vorbunker.

For those who might be interested, I post some pages I compiled about the bunkers in the postwar years …

Interesting selection of photos, a few of which I have never seen before. The captioning is also quite helpful for the ones which I have seen.

Thanks Lutrebois!

Does anybody know any additional information on the outdoor freight/car elevator that was located on the east side of the mittelbau section of the Chancellery? I only have two images in my collection which I believe to be depicting this freight elevator. Where exactly did it lead? Did it connect to the "Kannenberg" passage between the new/old Chancellery kitchens, and over to the Vor/Fuhrerbunker area?

Today the Postcard "Langer saal" arrived, allowing me to make this "then" (1939) - "later" (1945) comparison …

NRK desk

Post by Mannheim » 06 Nov 2018 23:00

I've just been working on my blog and noticed something unusual. Much is made of the inlay work on the front of Hitler's desk in his NRK office - Speer describes how stoked Hitler was to see the unsheathed sword and so on - however the original desk seems to have been replaced at least once. I have found more than one photo of a different desk in Hitler's office. Perhaps the 'good' one was out for repairs? (I found all three photos on Pinterest):
