    1. germanys monument to the great fuhrer


    2. Albert Speers’ plans for the government complex on a north-south axis in Berlin. The red ones are the ones the Third Riech actually built. To give you perspective for that massive dome (the Volkshalle), that tiny purple building next to it is the Riechstag. If I remember correctly, it would have been bigger than most modern sports arenas, been 25+ stories tall, and made of stone.


    3. Unternehmen Größenwahn = Operation (grand) Lunacy

      Die geplanten Bauten der Nord-Süd Achse von Germania auf dem heutigen Berliner Stadtgrundriss = The planned buildings along the North-South axis of “Germania” upon the current Cityscape of Berlin

      Während des dritten Reichs realisierte Bauten = Buildings erected during the 3rd Reich.

      Flughafen Tempelhof = Airport Tempelhof

      Haus des Fremdenverkehrs = Tourism office

      Reichsluftfahrtministerium = Civil avaition authority

      Neue Reichskanzelei = The new chancellory OR Chancellor’s accomodation

      Südbahnhof = Southern train station

      Triumphbogen = German arc de Triomphe

      Kino = Cinema

      Verschieden Minesterien = Various ministeries

      Oberkommando des Heeres = Chief of the Military offices

      Siegesäule = Victory Column

      Brandenburger Tor = Brandenburg Gate

      Reichstagsgebäude = Parliament house

      Führerbau = Leader’s building

      Große Halle = Grand Hall

      Großes Becken = Big ass Pool

      Rathaus = City Council building

      Nordbahnhof = Northern train station

      If you’ve ever seen how big the German parliament building is already, you would know that everything on this plan, would have been monumental in scale.


    4. The whole thing probably would’ve been collapsed quiet fast, because Berlin is built on mostly weak soil. There are alot of buildings here, that are sinking all the time and this dome would’ve been extremely heavy. Sad Hitler…
