Himmler and Bormann share a joke on the terrace of Hitler's mountain retreat, spring 1943. Foreign Ministry liaison to Hitler's Chancellery, Walter Heuvel, shares the alughs. In the background is Hitler's dentist Hugo Blaschke.
On the right is a similar view of the site of Göring's house, taken in 2001 before the construction of the hotel on the hilltop. The circular water filled depressions in the center and right foreground are bomb craters remaining from the April 1945 attack. The hotel construction has radically changed this site - the view below from a similar perspective was taken after the hotel construction.
