During the spring of 1945 the allies were at the footsteps of Berlin. Many high ranking generals went underground in their fortified bunker to seek protection against the allied offensive. Photos by Sergey Anashkevitch.
Three bunkers such as this one were built around Berlin by 1935. Each was at the depth of 131 feet (40m) below the surface, and utilized concrete walls of thickness anywhere between 1.6m – 4.5m thick.
Each bunker was built as an air lock, to prevent any type of biological or toxic attack. The loss of power was also taken into account and the bunkers were equipped with diesel generators.

It's almost hard to believe that these photos are not actual photographs from war time. This took place on February 26th, 2012 in Kiev, Ukraine. It is a festival to celebrate those who fought bravely for the motherland. Very amazing to see such organization, to arrange an event of this size! All photos by email@example.com.
