    Snow, rain, mud, time. And the barracks are made of wood. Then, if they are given paint to guard them from the weather, the resemblance of how it was is diminished. Already today, there is a tension between keeping them up, and yet giving the feeling of how they were, floating in a sea of mud and gray in winter and spring, and immersed in the nauseating smoke of human bodies burning in summer. What can possibly be seen today, is only a tip of the iceberg of how it was back in autumn 1940 through the first days of 1945. Thank you, Germnay, andthank you to all the countries who are donating to keep it up, safe, and as authentic as possible, given the weather and the passing of time.
