Aftermath Of The July 1943 Bombings Of Hamburg

The aftermath of the July 1943 bombings of Hamburg.

Work crews—almost certainly comprised of Prisoners Of War from America and Russia—search the rubble on Berg Street after the July 1943 bombings.

Berg Street was more than five miles from the areas in which firestorms developed.

Had Berg Street been caught up in the firestorms, the damage, as seen in the photograph, would have been far, far worse.
