The bunker (headquarters) of the German 77th Reserve Division near the Egypt’s Church

The bunker was located on the second defence line, 5-10 kilometres from the front line. This bunker was a place where officers lived and the headquarters of the 257th Reserve Infantry Regiment. In order to feel better in the landscape of war, the Germans spared no time in building underground towns that would at least somewhat resemble homes. Hideouts and other building complexes were built on the hill, the stove provided heat to this structure and reduced humidity. Two metal hooks (holders for insulators) can be seen next to the building’s porch, which means that the building was provided with electricity. GPS: 55.746247, 26.310622
