Things are changing in Germany today!

Post by AvD » 01 Aug 2003 15:36

Last year, I visited the German war cemetery at Berchtesgaden. Found it easily on the map. This year, I had a new map and discovered that the name of the cemetery had changed. See the pictures.
And the Zeppelin Tribune in Nürnberg got brand new stairs.
Will send the picture later.

Here is the Zeppelin Tribune with the new stairs.
And the Göring Hill today: the hotel is nearly finished.
And last but not least: the eagle at the Stanggaß Reichskanzlei has lost its protection box: it's free again!

The original decoration of the München Hofbrauhaus is still unchanged.

And here is the interior of the Führerbau in München (where the Munich Agreements were signed).

I like the new name "Heldenfriedhof" (heroes cemetary) much better.
Many german soldiers who fought in WW1 and WW2 were heroes.

They were heros to their country. They should be remembered that way. I like the change.

i think that for a long time germans don't want to call Heroes cemetary because of public opinion about ww2. They did bad things in that days but its still part of the history of your country
