IMAG0104

A view of the steps leading up to the entrance of Darmstadt University of Technology building S2/02 from the Herrngarten. During the Nazi period, the eagle over the center arch would have been a Reichsadler, a symbol of the Third Reich. It would have perched over a swastika, but that offensive symbol has since been removed.

 

For more information about the Reichsadler, see Third Reich in Ruins by Geoffrey Walden.
