British Bombers Blast
Hitler's Berlin Palace
Into Worthless Ruins
The bomb that struck and prac
tically demolish d the Reich chan
cellory struck more than a build
ing. For the Reich chancellory was
Hitler's grandiose conception of a
fuehrer embodied in marble.
"When I rec:ive someone here
In the Reich chancellory, I do no

man, but as the fuehrer of the Ger
He wanted it to be awesomv
overwhelming, impressive. It was
It had 000 rooms. Rooms tha1
dwarfed men. Rooms that symbo
lized Hitler's passion for power.
It extended for a quart: r of p
mile. Outside it was almost a
plain as a barracks yellow-tinted
stucco with gray-stone trim. In
side it was an echoing labyrinth
of marble halls, tremendous col
umns. heavy tapestries, thick car
pets a structure rlanned minute
ly by Hitler himself.
Hitler built the chancellory as
a monument to his dream of the
German master race, and the en
tire building reflected his person
ality. For instance, he wanted lots of
pace. Super-dimensional con
struction. He once said:
"Big ideas can be produced only
in big rooms; the spirit bumps
against walls and ceilings."
Hitler insisted that the great
corridor leading to the diplomats'
hall in the chancellory should be
860 feet long. Architects sweated
to produce it, but they couldn't
stretch the hall quite enough. Fin
ally Hithr gave in with a sigh,
"I renounce these last 64 meters
with a heavy heart."
Hitler took great pains choosing1
the expensive tapestries that hung
from the main hall. Many of them
showed powerful horses in hunt
ing or war scenes. On other walls
Hitler's own paintings were hung,
his weird fantasies of recent years.
Eight-Iegg:d animals. Peculiar
drawings of human heads.
Hitler sketched the Maginot line
after the attack by the Germans
and he has hundreds of sketches
of German naval vessels.
In the vast shadowy rooms of
the chancellory Hitler took refuge
in music. The strains of Wagner,
played for the Nazi leader by his
favorite musician, filled his pri
vate apartment. Wagner's chords
are big, and powerful, like the
massive walls of the chancellory.
Hitler once said:
"For me, Wagner is something
godlike, celestial, and his music is
