Did you know that if all Berlin rubble of WWII were to be used to build one construction, it would be enough to erect a 10-metre thick and 20-metre wall from Germany´s capital to Hannover?
 
Or, alternatively, if you were to stretch you material more “sideways” than upwards, you could have a 30-metre thick but 5-metre tall wall from Berlin to Cologne.
 
It´s rather unlikely that Albert Speer considered any of the two options.
