Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

BERLINER SPORTPALAST 1948

Here, as a little piece of historic background for the previous post: the ruins of the Berliner Sportpalast and the intact (as it still is) bunker Pallasstrasse to its left. Today the said bunker stands under (in? thorugh?) the so called Pallasseum.

The Sportpalast was not only a tremendously popular sports venue as the name suggested but it also became one of the favourite move-the-masses venues for the Nazi big wigs.
