Flakturm-Archäologie. Ein Fundbuch zu den Wiener Festungsbauwerken

Flakturm-Archäologie. Ein Fundbuch zu den Wiener Festungsbauwerken
The historian Marcello La Speranza, a well-known specialist in the field of war archeology of the 20th century, presents the latest insights into the history of the three Flakturm (flak tower) pairs of Vienna. His excavations in the Flakturm Arenbergpark brought out sensational finds from the "everyday life in the Second World War".
Original plans from the office of the architect Friedrich Tamms, secret records of the Turmflak departments, hospital books, uniforms, children's toys and much more awaited a rediscovery of the "rubble of history" for decades. Likewise, lost field post letters appeared, which were analyzed and later handed over to the members of the letter-writers. The author succeeds in assigning these objects and documents to their historical context. In interviews, a former Italian forced laborer, a former Red Cross sister and former Luftwaffe helpers came to speak.
La Speranza also documents the history of the remaining flak towers iin Vienna. Equipped with a lot of plans and photographs, this book shows the transformation of the former flak tower in the Esterházypark to the "House of the Sea - Aquaterra Zoo", in which the author has also built a remarkable exhibition "Remembrance in the Interior".
