Oderbruch floods of 1947

All in my area so very interest for me, Bad Freienwalde & Wriezen are my 2 main shopping places.
Oderbruch 1947 when the Oder river overflowed.* The locals blame it on the Russians who bombed the ice and managed to bomb the dam, they say.


I found this on the internet this morning saying the bridge (shown in the film washed away in 1947) to Poland was opened on the 29th June 2021, so I went to have a look as its just down the road.

Maybe in June 2023 it will open if we are lucky. In the last picture you can see the electric fence that stretched the length of the Dam to try and stop the wild pigs getting in from Poland as they have swine fever and we don´t want that on top of everything else.
