... was coming, exactly the same as the previous one... It reminded me of the infinite forest in Zelda, maybe I had to go a certain sequence of directions (but no I kept going east).

The Germans tried to blow up the chambers to eradicate the evidence of what they had done. However, they were too late. The ruins of the chambers are still there. We saw ...
