Bucharest under heavy bombing – part two


These images are relatively new on the Internet. It was a little bit shocking for me to see them. I just heard some stories from my grandfather and from some books that the Bucharest was hit in 4th and 15th of April 1944 by American and Britannic planes but I never guessed that it was at this scale.

I imagine about that it was somewhere at the periphery on some military barracks or railway network. I knew about the old National Theatre, that was hit by mistake instead of the Telephony Palace building near by but I never imagined that the University building and the University Square, Calea Victoriei and Atenee Palace was bombed so hard.

Imaginile sunt relativ noi pe net. A fost oarecum socant pentru mine sa le vad. Am tot auzit din povestile bunicului meu si am citit in cateva carti despre faptul ca Bucurestiul a fost lovit de bombardamentele aliate in 4 si 15 aprilie 1944 dar mi-am imaginat ca asta s-a intamplat undeva la periferie, in cazarmile militare sau asupra liniilor de cale ferata. Stiam de faptul ca teatrul national vechi a fost lovit din gresala in locul cladirii Palatului Telefoanelor din apropiere dar nu am crezut ca Piata si cladirea Universitatii, Calea Victoriei si Atenee Palace au fost lovite atat de puternic.

  1. extrem de interesante
    nici eu nu imi amintesc sa le fi vazut vreodata, parca cea cu Univ mi se pae totusi cunoscuta.
