While on a spring vacation in the north-east of Germany the Colossus of Rügen in Prora was a given stop. The calmness of the pre-season seaside fit well with the quiet massiveness of the almost endless housing blocks. It was a great day.
The Prora KdF was intended as a seaside resort for up to 20,000 people mainly workers and their families by the organisation Kraft durch Freude. The many kilometres long buildings lining the water of the Prorer Wiek were constructed between 1936 and 1939 but was never finished.
