Back to the map
Back to the map! So first off big thanks goes out to Harry Tucker, Harry did some excellent research and realised it is not “home” written beneath cafe on the map it was actually “Heinze” making Cafe Heinze. Cafe Heinze was a very popular spot on Reeperbahn however it did not survive the allied bombing of Hamburg. Looking at the RAF photos we can see remains of the cafe on the map. This truly is a great bit of detective work and it adds some weight to this map being drawn during the occupation.
If you have facts or information about HO19 please share it with us as it really helps our work documenting the tunnel. And we love to be given alternative ideas an corrections to work we submit online. We strongly believe in our website being a live database meaning we can make changes and updates frequently, unlike a book that remains in its original state.
