Gerszewski Barracks Karlsruhe

Rhein-Kaserne was built in the Karlsruhe suburb of Knielingen from 1935-38. It was occupied by the U.S. Army as Gerszewski Barracks. The photo on the left shows the Hoheitszeichen on a building beside the gate – remains of the swastika still appeared under U.S. Army prednisone control in the 1950s and 1960s. The eagle remained until the Kaserne was torn down in 2004.
