Remaining example of Nazi version of Munich's coat of arms (its reichsadler since removed) I came across the other day

I visited the Munich NS-Documentation Center on Konigsplatz last month (which has an excellent exhibition), and there was a big white tube that ran from the base of the remains of the Ehrentempel to a window in the basement of the building formerly known as the Fuhrerbau. Anybody have any idea what this is about?

Less ego involved here- I tried the other day to compare Munich sites affected by the Novemberpogrom but it's too difficult- the bombing forced so much to be rebuilt so there's little to compare, and street numbers don't correspond anymore.

Put this on my Facebook page and the Künstlerhaus 'liked' it, although I'd posted it to show how little IT had changed compared to the main synagogue:

Last one- I took my Geo class on fieldwork around Königssee and my History class the following week to Berlin. A couple of 'kind of' Munich-related GIFs from both trips; the ones I'd made involving students are admittedly much more impressive:

Took me two 30-mile cycle trips to get this right of the atrium of Munich University showing the May 10, 1933 deomonstration after which professors and students marched by torchlight to burn books on Konigsplatz:

Can anyone identify these symbols?

Came across these reliefs by accident when cycling around Munich. The owl in the centre is dated 1934- any ideas?
