  • Description

    RELICS OF THE ERA OF NAZI-ISM IN GERMANY ARE BEING DEMOLISHED IN THE WEST GERMAN CITY OF NUREMBURG TO MAKE WAY FOR A HOUSING PROJECT.

    THEY ARE THE ELEVEN TOWERS SURROUNDING THE 'MARCH FIELD', SCENE OF HITLER'S MASS RALLIES IN NUREMBERG.

    THE TOWERS, 100-FEET HIGH (35 METRES) BLOCKS OF SOLID STONE, HAD TO BE DYNAMITED AFTER EVERY OTHER METHOD OF DEMOLITION FAILED.

    THE TOWERS ARE MAKING WAY FOR A NEW HOUSING ESTATE BEING BUILT ON 'MARCH FIELD'. THE RUBBLE FROM THE TOWERS WILL BE USED TO MAKE A BANK 50 FEET HIGH (17 METRES) TO BLOCK THE NOISE OF THE CITY.

    NAZI AUTHORITIES HAD PLANNED TO BUILD 26 OF THE TOWERS AROUND THE SITE, BUT ONLY ELEVEN WERE EVER COMPLETED.
