Abandoned tower on old Route 25, north of Bowling Green, OH. This was built to house water tank for livestock & people. Brick walls 18" thick helped to keep the water from freezing.

There was a bathroom on the 2nd floor and an additional water tank on the 3rd floor, which caught runoff from the roof when it rained. There are many of these in NW Ohio. Often the rest of the farm is long gone but the towers…

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

Remember this lady?

A true hero…Irena Sendler is an unbelievably inspirational Polish woman who was runner up for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. She came in 2nd to Al Gore who prepared a slide show on global warming. (Further evidence that even the Nobel Prize has become political.) During WWII, Sendler managed to save the lives of 2500 Jewish infants and children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw ghetto.
