I am from Northern Germany, living on the country-side near the north-sea coast in a small village. Studied socialwork/social education, later biology (neurobiology/brain research) and was a sailor too for a few years before.

Last twelve years I worked at a psychiatric hospital, forensic departement; that is an enclosed ward for criminals (including paederasts and child-murderers) suffering from psychic deseases, very similar to a high-security jail, was not a funny job at all. Besides that I sometimes used to continue work and studies at university-laboratories on brain-resarch (on rats and apes).

Now I am retired for health reasons (heart, not brain http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ). Last years I also studied a bit history and philosophy at university just for private and personal education in my elder lifetime.

Since the whole human life in my view (which already some ancient greek philosophers shared) is nothing like some kind of a simulation taking place inside our brains and since our most famous german poet (Goethe) pointed: "Man is only a real human, when he is playing...!" I for myself get much fun with computer-simulations. And especially Silent Hunter sometimes brings me back to my former time at sea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hallo Beeryus,

I´m sorry Sir, that island and restaurant lays (relatively) far away from my home - north- eastern coast of Germany. I am living near Bremen/Bremerhaven - north-western coast (at the northern sea near East-Denmark).

But in Bremerhaven-Schiffahrtsmuseum you can enter a real type XXI-boat, it was used by the post-war German Navy (with technically adapted modern equipment) until 1984 - and it was their fastes and biggest u-boat until then.

Fascinating all that still impressing technique and perfection even on details of secondary importance (like e.g. wooden cupboards etc.). If you imagine, that these boats were built at a time the whole country already laid in ruins, estimating half year before war ended, the Russians near Berlin, the British/Americans at the Rhine-River - and nevertheless the BdU got about 200 (!) of them ready for duty...

Also nearby my home, at the Weser-River, you can visit "Valentin" an enormous u-boat bunker, which was planned as a protected factory for the serial production of type XXI boats. After the war the allies tried to destroy Valentin, dropping the biggest bombs from their arsenals on its roof - in vane, Valentin is still there.

Much was written meanwhile about some "what-if" scenarios on WWII, mainly these theories are difficult within details and concerning consequences, they don´t offer undoubtful conclusions. But referring to these type XXI boats I am quite sure: if they could have disposed of them already 1943, the invasion never would have taken place - the strategic situation would not longer have allowed Sir Winston and Mr.Roosevelt to stay away from the bargaining-table. Millions and millions could have survived on all sides.

"If" there would have - theoretically - exist a normal government in Berlin instead of a pack of hysteric amateurs driven by dreadful ideas, and assisted from spineless creatures of high military ranks; hence serious politicians - who possibly would have followed the advices of the little Admiral in time...

Who, as a real expert, was severely dismayed when he was informed war with England was in fact about to begin. He turned pale in his face and retired into his chamber for hours.

His speech he directed after to his officers was: "Gentlemen, don´t you be in doubt even not for one single moment about Englands resolouteness - they will not step back, this war will be very hard for us and will last not less then five or six years. And we can consider ourselves lucky if we don´t lose that war!"

And (only) he knew for sure, that exactly his u-boats were the only weapons to give Germany a small chance to come out of that war possibly by negotiatins and not as the final loser and totally destructed - but he also realized, that he must went to war with only a handful of u-boats, not more than about eight or ten available at the same time out on the atlantic.

The problem is, most museums cut big holes in the side of the subs for visitors to walk in and out. It cuts down the claustrophobia a lot. Often they even cut out the hatches inside, the conning tower is closed off and the ladder cut out. The result is that you get a very watered-down experience. Basically it just feels like the inside of a ship. In fact I've been in WW2 ships that felt more claustrophobic than a sub.

Personally, I think it's a shame to cut up the subs for tourist access. It's sort of disrespectful. It would be much better if they left the subs as they were and took people in through the hatches. I think it's ironic that museums - places that are supposed to preserve history - mutilate subs in this way.

I agree with that. I like too much subs to see them with openings along the hull. But when I think of the low mobility people who could not visit them without these openings I think it is fair.

I'm not sure it's fair.

Anyway.....there are some security rules that oblige museum to "prepare" the subs.

When I wrote low mobility people I didnt think about a person on his wheel chair (no way to "drive" inside the sub...) but more about a "little" handicap (If I can say that). For example, someone who lost a leg could have the ability to visit a sub, I dont think it is the same thing than flying in outerspace...or being superman. Just something realist and fair.

Exactly the same way. I was having a little joke, because "what you do for a living?" is a phrase that is generally accepted as meaning "what job do you do?", but it could also be assumed to mean "how do you feed yourself?"

I like to pretend people are asking me how I feed myself because I haven't had a paying job in 5 years, so I don't really 'do anything for a living' except go to the supermarket.

No one 'needs' to visit a sub. I would prefer a sub to be preserved rather than letting me (or anyone else, disabled or not) enjoy a visit if my visit meant that they were going to tear holes in it, so my answer is yes.

I would willingly never visit another sub again in my life if my staying away would ensure that all subs were kept intact by museums. Museums are supposed to preserve things, not mutilate them. A museum is supposed to be a store of knowledge, not a circus. They wouldn't chip bits off the Mary Rose (or any other historical ship) and sell them to tourists, so I don't see why cutting up a submarine for tourists is any different. It simply shouldn't be acceptable, and it shouldn't be done.

For once, I actually agree with Beery. Uboats are antiques, they are relics which need to be preserved. Cutting massive holes in one is no way to explain the life and times of a uboat crew, there will be natural light (probably) flooding the interior, which would never happen, and it would significantly cut down on the claustraphobic atmosphere. A disadvantage to those who are less able than others, certainly, but still a better option than to mutilate a uboat. I'd be much happier to climb down one of the 3 hatches (going by the model I have of my type VIIC) than to walk into a sub.

u2336
01-06-2005, 09:50 AM

For Beeryus....Just a question....what is the purpose of a museum ? Just storing relics ??

Getting in a sub, a plane, a tank can show you thousand times better what was the reality. Pics or books are good too but seeing the things with your own eyes is an unique experience.

A museum is a living thing, not a place to collect dust.

U-551 Kapitan

And they can be seen by people. It's just unfortunate that the elderly will have a more difficult time getting in. The museum which stored a uboat would attract a lot of young visitors who could effortlessly slide down the ladder (I doubt this would be allowed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif) But I don't think that if a uboat is mutilated, it will have the same educational value. I mean, they take out the ladder, hatches, periscope and a number of different things which gives a much different impression of a uboat than the reality.

Of course not! But if the exhibits are to be beneficial they should be kept intact - that's a simple matter of responsibility. As soon as you mutilate them - whatever the reason - you are not doing the job of a museum, and you are making it that much harder for future researchers to find the facts of history.

Well having managed a shop with displays i would say dont blame the museum for the mutilation of your subs. Blame American lawyers who started the damage claim terror which blights the world.

The reason they dont have ladders, small hatches ect is because the average joe schmoe would slip down the ladder, bang his head on a valve, get caught in the hatch and then trap his hand in the torpedo tube. Then promptly sue the museum for 10,000,000 for mental, physical and spacial trauma, and the nasty rip in his girlfriends dress. Meaning they had to sell the U-boat to bobs scrap metal co. Who would mince it up into tuna fish cans, which would then feed students at law school and get them educated in the ways of law so they could go on to think of new and amusing ways of sueing people.

Wow, lots of educated, intelligent people in this community - good to see.

I'm 30 years old, served in the United States Air Force for 4 years. After the Military service, I worked odd jobs for a while. Then worked at an automotive engineering division for a couple of years. Then I traded electricity on the real-time markets for 6 years.

Now I'm inbetween jobs, just relaxing and doing lots of reading & gaming.

I've been a WWII history fanatic since 1992, and became deeply involved in the Uboat part of the war in 1996.
