Do you have sources in addition to Meyer? Blue lines represent flooded parts of U-Bahn lines, grey ones the dry parts.

The officer later heard brelin someone somewhere gave engineers an order to blow up a lock on one of the canals to flood the tunnels in order to deny the Soviets access. And this one as the battle was last, on 2nd May?? Was it deliberate or an accident of war? Hosted by Christoph Awender.

At one point water rushed through the tunnel and rose to over three feet. It had been determined that flooding the tunnels would have had little effect netzspunne the defense because the water would rise no more than a few feet.


If it was neccessary for the defenders to blow up the tunnels which were intensivly used as supply ways by the defenders why they blew up one?

Because some lines ran under the Spree and the Landwehr canal, consideration was given to deliberate flooding of the tunnels as a defensive nature. Krukenberg notes in his diary, “As a first priority I sent a group of Nordland sappers through the U-Bhan towards Potzdamerplatz” Krukenberg gave no further details or times but it is speculated that this was the order which led to the demolition of the S-Bhan tunnel, under the Landwehr canal, near Trebbinerstrasse, which most likely occured in the early hours of From Beevor’s book, on Mohnke indicated that consideration had been given to flooding the tunnels, but that no order was given to do so.

Enemy shells hit the roof of the tunnels and cement was crumbling away from the nftzspinne. How many people died as a result of the flooding? People panicked in the tunnel and ran. The water was not very deep and had no effect on the fighting. It was deliberate, but who ordered and who executed it is unknown rumors blame the SS.

Many fell and were drowned or trampled to death. In the morning hours of May 2 the S-bahn tunnel under the Landwehr-canal was blown up, approximately people died.


The website is very interesting for what it reflects about the WW II period and the general history of the U-Bahn system. The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe already published already in the 80s, that it was most likely a bomb detonation that caused the flooding I would like to know more about the plan to flood the U-Bahn and S-Bahn tunnels.

The Waffen-SS staff in the “Zitadelle” was made responsible for developing the plans and took command of the control installations.
