Here is a map of the flooding: If it was neccessary for the defenders to blow up the tunnels which were intensivly used as supply ways by netzpinne 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. Does anyone have more on this subject Thanks Martin.

Re-shaping the ‘U-Bahn Spinne’? A new design for Map of the Berlin Underground – and the old ones.

And this one as the battle was last, on 2nd May?? How many people died as a result of the flooding? If deliberate, who ordered it, what unit or units was responsible for executing the order, and at which points in the system were charges set off?


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 ceiling. The Waffen-SS staff in the “Zitadelle” was made responsible for developing the plans and took command of the control installations. If possible, please include sources.

Was it deliberate or an accident of war? The website is very interesting for what it reflects about the WW II period and the general history of the U-Bahn system. Too much beevorish conclusions This story was invented by communist propaganda soon after the war.

The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe already published already in the 80s, that it was most likely a bomb detonation that caused the flooding In the morning hours of May 2 the S-bahn tunnel under the Landwehr-canal was blown up, approximately people died. From Beevor’s book, on Krukenberg notes in his diary, “As a first priority I sent a group of Berlinn 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 The officer later heard that 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.


To what extent were the tunnels flooded?

Netzplan –

Many fell and were drowned or trampled to death. At one point water rushed through the tunnel and rose to over three feet.

There was friction between the Waffen-SS and the railway engineers. It was deliberate, but who ordered and who executed it is unknown rumors blame the SS. Blue lines represent flooded parts of U-Bahn lines, grey ones the dry parts. People panicked in the tunnel and ran. One engineer, who tried to stop preparations for planting explosive charges, was shot. I would like to know more about the plan to flood the U-Bahn and S-Bahn tunnels. Do you have sources in addition to Meyer?
