@Walter Hinteler,
This week, it's the 75th anniversary of the bombing

The Dambusters 75 years on: How marbles inspired the Second World War's most daring bombing raid

While many remember "one of Britain’s greatest wartime triumphs" and "the heroism of 617 Squadron and ingenuity of Barnes Wallis", we here remember the civilian deaths and the damages (there are at least four people, who survived the bombing and are still living today).

Some photos at this website from our local paper (in German, but just click on the pics) >HERE<

Now a lot of us remember the racist name given to the labrador in the film.
