Ostwall Panzerwerk 757

This bunker of the German Festungsfront Oder-Warthe-Bogen (Ostwal a.k.a. East Walll) was built between 1938 and 1939.

All of the Ostwall fortifications are connected by a 32 km long underground system of tunnels.

On 28 January 1945 the Red army launched an attack on the central part of the Ostwall. After 3 days of intense fightings the Russians managed a break through in the central and southern parts.

The bunker today:
Panzerwerk 757 was largely destroyed by the Red army.
