Interesting ... take it was to do with the Art that was stored in the Flakbunkers?

Is this the poem? https://standpointmag.co.uk/text-june-0 ... ames-poem/
If so not quite correct as she was moved to the Merkers saltmines in Thüringen before the russians got hands on her. From there to Wiesbaden and did not return to Berlin until 1956.

I was looking for the collection of poems [Nefertiti in the Flack Tower] by the recently late Clive James.
I eventually found his web site with poem.
https://www.clivejames.com/nefertiti-in ... -poem.html
The title, mentioning flak towers, had caught my attention.
James died a few days ago; his humour and scholarship will be missed .

Walleed - you said

I guess that is an example of poetic licence. :)
