Frozen in time

One more and final contribution from the Kemmelberg underground command bunker we visited before.

Everything in the complex has been left (or staged) exactly as if the command center was still in operation. If you didn’t know better, people had just left their offices for a meeting or for lunch. Down to the smallest detail, each room has been organized to recreate the ‘smell of the times’.

But fortunately, the alarm bells will never sound again, nor will the phones start to ring or the headsets filling with frantic messages. The place is now a Cold War relic, forever frozen in time…
