Annihilation – the watchtower

The sort “BT 6” watchtower, one of the last remnants from the GDR period, can be found in a small side street on Potsdamer Platz. A concrete exterior with a circular base and an octangular top. Within, two iron ladders carry you up a few metres to tree-top level, where you can look out through the small windows just like the border soldiers did.
The “panoramic observation platform,” as it was known, was part of the border troops’ base and the Ministry of State Security. It was used to keep an eye on the border area as well as the nearby ministries. From 1966, the solid model “BT 6” watchtower with rifle loopholes was constructed. There were more than 200 of these watchtowers on the Berlin border at the end of the GDR period.
The Potsdamer Platz watchtower was built in 1971. From the Tiergarten to the Brandenburg Gate, there was a shooting range. Two border patrol soldiers were stationed at the tower at all times, working eight-hour shifts in cramped quarters.
The watchtower is now the only one of its kind left. It was designated as a historically significant site in 2001, and renovations began ten years later. The tower can now be seen on Erna-Berger-Straße thanks to the efforts of volunteers. On the Initiative Berlin Wall Exhibition’s website,, you can find the opening hours and costs.

In many parts of the world, a watchtower is a form of fortification. It differs from a typical tower in that it serves mostly for military purposes, and it differs from a turret in that it is normally a freestanding structure. Its primary function is to provide an elevated, protected vantage point from which a sentinel or guard can observe the surroundings. Non-military buildings, such as religious towers, can be used as watchtowers in some cases.
The towers along Hadrian’s Wall in Britain, for example, were constructed as part of a communications system by the Romans.
[2] The Romans constructed several lighthouses,[3] including the Tower of Hercules in northern Spain, which is still operational today,[4] and the equally famous lighthouse at Dover Castle, which has been reduced to a ruin at about half its original height.
[5] Several castles and manor houses, as well as other fortified structures, had watchtowers in medieval Europe.
[6] The watchtower, armed with arrow or gun openings, was one of the main defenses in some of western France’s manor houses. From the top of his castle, a feudal lord might keep watch over his territory.

Watchtower pictures (2011)

In the quest for evidence of the Watchtower Society’s sinister roots, it has become clear that demonic contours can be seen in a large number of representations in the Watchtower booklets. These demon fringes accumulate in black areas in particular. When the book is rotated to the correct angle to the light source, they are also visible to the naked eye.
By brightening the picture and changing the contrast, you will find a lot of demon representations. This “grain” does not appear in any other printed product that has been compared. This “grain” can only be found in the Watchtower Society’s printed material. Give it a shot!
On the one side, these “background ghosts” are depicted in the Watchtower’s publications in a disproportionately large amount. Death masks and other similar items, on the other hand, are prominently featured in the illustration. Sometimes, one does not even need to rotate the image to notice these evil shards.
Such diabolical descriptions are to be compiled on this page and other pages appearing in a random order so that the reader can be convinced that Satan’s signature resides in the Watchtower amidst magnificently crafted piety. Satan is not permitted to use the ideal lie to trick people. That’s why he’s forced to make such flimsy distinguishing signs!

The close view is dominated by the Desert View Watchtower (1932). Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, also known as the “Architect of the Southwest,” designed this building. She traveled all over the Southwest in search of inspiration and authenticity for her structures. Her inspiration came from the ancestral Puebloan people of the Colorado Plateau. This tower was modeled after the Hovenweep Round Tower and the Mesa Verde Round Tower. Colter stated that it was not a carbon copy of any she had seen before, but rather a composite of many.
Take note of some of the intricate designs she’d carved into the tower as well. Look for the white decorative stones at the top of the tower, which fade out as the eye moves around it. She’d seen this pattern at Chaco Canyon and figured it’d be a nice way to break up the monotony of the Watchtower. The built-in cracks, which are patterned after some of the ancient towers she’d seen, were purposefully placed. Some of the stones brought here from near Ash Fork have petroglyphs on them.
