    As monumental forms made of concrete, the bunkers dot Europe’s landscape; from Berlin and Germany, to French Brittany, the English Channel, even to the northern and southern coasts (as the “Atlantic Wall”). In Italy, Austria, Germany, etc., bunkers can be found in the middle of cities as oversized, indestructible bodies. The National Socialists called their bunker construction project “Fortress Europe”. Their dark past is firmly inscribed in the bunkers.
