How soon we forget!

Some things are best left buried.

The bunker, in particular, is of no architectural or aesthetic merit and Hitler did nothing positive of note in it to merit anyone making a fast buck out of insensitive or ignorant tourists, let alone Neo-Nazi groupies.

Leave well alone.

Future generations, further removed from the awfulness of those times, might have more excuse to put them on display, but we are too close to the generation who suffered at these b@st@rds hands to insult them by turning these political ruins into visitor attractions.

For shame!

Sid.

This is the location of Göbbels private bunker, as you can see it is within the today´s Holocaust memorial.

Hi All,
Am I to assume that the bunkers shown on the plan are not accessible? or do Berlin unterwelten have access.
I would love to see if there are pictures of any of these bunkers about although I suspect that is not the case.

Ps I am an old friend of Rudolf v. Ribbentrop who took an interest in his Fathers former shelter.
A fine man indeed. A true warrior.

Are there any photos of Goebbels' villa from the 1930s, or after the fall of Berlin?
