12. Secrets Behind Rusty Doors
Eventually, the urban explorer and photographer was able to find an opening. The bunker Askat discovered, although unique, was most likely far from the only bunker Hitler had in France. The ruins of Nazi bunkers still exist throughout northern France to this day, including the Batterie Todt near Normandy, and a rocket launching bunker that was never completed called Le Blockhaus. The Nazis occupied France for several years in World War II, but that all came to an end with the Liberation of Paris in 1944. Askat entered the bunker and began exploring a massive network of tunnels and rooms that sprawled beneath the surface for what he believes to be six miles. It started to look as if he was lost in a maze.
