About the Work

While the young relax at Nuremberg, their elders head for Berchtesgaden. High in the Bavarian Alps may be found a suburban villa. It was built as a tearoom-cum-love-nest for the Führer and Eva, a personal gift from Reichmarschall Göring. Many fit, elderly vacationers make the climb to what is now a fast-food restaurant.
In the valley below stands the former barracks of the Waffen SS and what remains of the villas of Göring and friends.
