Section of 'Hitler's Wall' sent to WWII Museum in New Orleans
In this Friday, July 22, 2011 photo, Ed Jorgensen, of Woodward Design, inspects one of three sections of Nazi Germany's Atlantic Wall, as they are offloaded at the Port of New Orleans, where they will be on display at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. The slabs are part of Nazi Germany's Atlantic Wall, a variety of defenses that stretched 3,200 miles from France to Norway and were designed to stop, or at least slow, the Allies from advancing inland during an invasion.
