Hohlgangsanlage 8 Underground Hospital

Ho8 was built underground by forced labourers from all over the world, provided by the the Organisation Todt. 43,000 tons of rock were removed and the space lined with 6,000 tons of concrete. And despite the term hospital it was definitely not a humanitary project. Originally the bunker was built as bombproof barracks, store and workshop to service heavy weapons. But this plan was changed even before it was completed. So the completed bunker was able to cater for 500 casualties with wards, contained a fully equipped operating room and a number of administrative rooms.
