Prora, a beach resort on the island of Rügen, Germany, is known its colossal Nazi-planned tourist structures. The massive building complex was built between 1936 and 1939 as a Strength Through Joy (Kraft durch Freude or KdF) project. The eight buildings are identical, and were planned as a holiday resort but never used for this purpose. The complex has a formal heritage listing as a particularly striking example of Third Reich architecture. Since 2004, the individual blocks have been sold off.
The Junkers Ju 88 was a German World War II Luftwaffe twin-engined multirole combat aircraft. Designed by Junkers Flugzeug- und Motorenwerke (JFM) in the mid-1930s to be a so-called Schnellbomber ("fast bomber") which would be too fast for any of the fighters of its era to intercept, it suffered from a number of technical problems during the later stages of its development and early operational roles, but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war.

✠ The tiny blue-eyed aviator Hanna Reitsch was the world's first woman test pilot, as well as the first woman helicopter pilot, flying the Focke-Achgelis Fa 61, the first fully controllable helicopter.

She was also the only woman to be awarded Germany's Iron Cross First Class. She died in 1979.
