As my grandfather used to say, this was from a time when "The ships may have been wooden ... but the men were Iron!!" Although he was refering to men a couple 100 years later. But the point remains the same.

well they somehow did. At least they were never part of that Germany and that's not bad for such a small country when they ran over countries like France. And there was this plan in case of a german attack to basically hide in the mountains and defend from there lol
But there are some dirty aspects too. The swiss sold weapons to Germany and at some point closed the boarders which was a cold act. And there's still a lot of jewish gold in the banks...


where do you guys see windows/doors??

Agreed. The location really does set it off, a little like it helps Mt. Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse sculptures in the US. But those are both lesser works. This is a stunning sculpture regardless. He does convey incredible sadness.

I was wildly disappointed in Mt. Rushmore when I saw it. And the size of these things is always misleading in photos. They're never as big as you think they're going to be.
