This diorama shows a free interpretation of several scenes that took place outside the submarine bunkers that Nazi Germany had built along the French Atlantic coast during World War II. Such bunkers were built in Brest, Lorient, La Pallice, Saint Nazaire and Bordeaux. Their aim was to be able to repair and prepare the submarines that were on duty against the merchant and military navies of the Allies in the Atlantic ocean. Such operations needed to be protected from air raids. The paramilitary engeneering troup Organisation Todt (OT) started planning the construction of the bunkers shortly after Nazi Germany occupied France. The realization of the project was shared with subcontacters from Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. For example: in the construction of the bunker in Brest, a total of 8.458 workers were employed during April 1942. 1.562 of this workers belonged to the OT. 3.438 were payed local specialized workers. The rest were called "auxiliary workers" - an eufemism to describe different cases of forced labour. Many of this workers were what the Nazis called "Rotspanier", Spanish citizens that fleed the military dictatorship in their country at the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).
The bunker in Brest covered an area of 192x332 meters, with a roof that was 6,2 meters thick. The bunker contained 5 mooring Piers and 10 dry docks. It could contain a total of 20 u-boats simultaneously. The first submarine was tended to in Brest on September the 13th 1941, before the Bunker was even completed.
This over 3 meters lang diorama was built by Siegfried Möhrman in a scale of 1:35. It was one of the last adquisitions made by our funder Prof. Peter Tamm before his passing. It is displayed in our exhibition dedicated to the history of subaquatic warfare, on deck 5 of the museum.
Another fantastic weekend has come and gone. As a kid I grew up on this river. Countless times our parents would take us boating or meet up with friends and drink beer on the beach with a campfire glow as we ran around like little barefoot savages playing (full contact) capture the flag and hide and seek. These memories played a major role in starting my brand @countryliberty but it’s funny, it took me until I was a young adult to truly realize what I had.
Until I moved away to Dartmouth at 16 to play for the @hfx_mooseheads I simply assumed everybody grew up the same way I did. After exploring the world further I realized less and less people actually did. Soooo many of my “in-land” hockey friends never had the chance to experience a place like this. From this I gained perspective and realized how lucky I was to have such automatic / easy access to the river, the ocean and these wide open spaces. Not everybody has that - and because I do I am forever grateful.
Last weekend was spent entirely on the water, we spent Friday night on the boat within cottage country and all day Saturday floating out in the Atlantic Ocean carelessly. Made some new friends and hung with some old - laughed the ENTIRE time, legit found myself collapsed on the floor multiple times - it was one of those.
Знакомьтесь, друзья: Белобровик (Turdus iliacus) 🐥
Ну и со мной ещё раз тоже познакомьтесь: новоявленный орнитолог-любитель! Когда собирался сюда в этот раз, мечтал увидеть тупиков - это был, конечно же верх мечтаний, ну и думал, вдруг ещё кого-то удастся увидеть, ну, кроме чаек и уток)). И даже фотик взял такой прям суперский, да ещё и с телеобъективчиком небольшим. И знаете ли, это оказывается тааааак увлекательно!!! Вдруг где-то увидел птичку, и ты её вообще не знаешь!! Носишься за ней, снимаешь со всех ракурсов. А потом ещё одна. Ещё... Дикий просто азарт!! Какие уж там водопады и ледники, я вас умоляю!!))
А потом, дома, разбираешься фотки и погружаешься во вторую часть этого кайфа: лезешь в интернет и пытаешься распознать своих пиксельных пернатых питомцев. Это похлеще любой компьютерной игрульки затягивает, две ночи и 2,5 дня потрачено на это!! Так что ждите ещё и кучу разных птиц, надеюсь, вам они тоже понравятся!) И спасибо ещё одному коллеге-орнитологу за помощь и душевное участие! 😍 🕊️
🇬🇧 Let me introduce The Redwing (Turdus iliacus). And me like a new ornitologist!) When I had going to Iceland I thought that it's so difficult to Catch some birds by camera, but so many kinds of birds there and I really like hunting with camera on them!)) And after all it's so interesting searching info about and recognizing them in Internet! 🔥

Mogul the humpback whale is a regular to the warm Massachusetts waters over the extended summer months. Individual humpbacks can be identified by the distinctive and unique patterns on their tail flukes. Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are baleen whales that feed mostly on krill and small fish. They are believed to have a similar lifespan to humans. Awesome experience to observe at close quarters.
