How well would the German population be protected in the event of war? The significantly reduced number of shelters and bunkers as well as their partial conversion and conversion make you think.

1,400 bunkers gone: Specialists have been checking the functionality and possible reopening of the remaining German bunkers for a long time. According to “FAZ”, 599 of the 2,000 public shelters are still left.

“Absolute remainders”: Martin Voss, Professor of Disaster Research at the Free University of Berlin, describes the number as “smoke candle” and the systems as “absolute remainders”. According to a spokesman for the Federal Agency for Real Estate Tasks, “it cannot be assumed that the systems can still fulfill their original protective function”.
