Hindenburggruft Tannenberg
Das Reichsehrenmal Tannenberg
arrival of Field Marshal Hindenburg’s coffin on 7 August 1934
foreword by Adolf Hitler
Das Reichsehrenmal Tannenberg or German National Memorial at Tannenberg was begun in 1927 to honor the German regiments that fought the famous World War I battle there. Reichspräsident von Hindenburg who appointed Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933 was buried there and it provided a reason for Hitler to rebuild the memorial between 1936 and 1938 in a larger, far grander style with many more features than were originally anticipated.

Because of its out-of-the-way location in East Prussia (today it is Poland) and because of the constant battles that took place there from 1942 to 1945, few Germans or others were able to visit the Tannenberg Memorial. In January 1945 German troops removed the coffin of Hindenburg and his wife and destroyed most of the monument. What was left was used as building materials for the construction of the Palace of Culture in Warsaw and today only overgrown foundations remain.
