Serienfertigung und Kriegseinsatz der Peenemünder 'Vergeltungswaffen'' (lit. Destructive progress. Series production and war deployment of Peenemuende 'V-weapons' (retaliatory weapons)) at the power plant of the former army testing facility Peenemuende. The exhibit is an original rocket engine part, which striked in England in short distance to London 1944. It was kept in a barn and passed on to the museum only in the past years. The army testing facilities Peenemuende were Europe's biggest military research centres from 1936 to 1945. Up to 12.000 people were able to simultaneously work on new weapons systems like the 'V1' and 'V2' in the hermetically sealed North of the island of Usedom. Photo: Stefan Sauer/dpa
