I have updated my article on German Village - added some photos and such. This was my first article for my history blog and it is still one of my favorites. This really is a fascinating building and it continues to draw historians and researchers from around the world - in fact, we have a scheduled visit from a NYC architect in the next few weeks.
This is one of my favorite work projects and I think it turned out exceptionally well.
German Village today (left) and during a WWII test bombing event (right). Note one half has the red clay tile roof and the other half of the building is a gray slate roof. Clearly, this is a residential structure which has enormous implications for WWII policy on civilians and enemy combatants.
