Egypt: Cave museum dedicated to Nazi General Rommel reopens after 7 years

The Rommel Cave Museum in Marsa Matrouh, which hosts many personal belongings of German Nazi General Erwin Rommel, was reopened by Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities and the Matrouh governorate, Saturday, after a seven-year renovation plan. Footage shot on Wednesday showed visitors exploring the Cave Museum and its artefacts, which range from Rommel's pictures and personal weapons to Nazi flags and... Еще memorabilia. A vistor, Ahmed Hassan, said, «I love to see these belongings as we used to hear about [this part of history] only in our study books, but now we can see it in reality. I am very happy with that.» The cave was used as Rommel's headquarters for his military operations during the North African wars at the time of World War II. Renovations cost an estimated 2.5 million Egyptian pounds (€116,750.00; $139,250.00).
