ABSTRACT
Recounts the celebration in Germany for the 50th anniversary commemoration of the V-2 rocket in Peenemunde where the rocket was first built and launched. The V-2 killed more than 2,000 British civilians, its construction cost 20,000 concentration-camp victims their lives, and under Kohnstein Mountain lie darkness, booster engines and scummy water. The celebration triggered outrage in Britain and the week was marred by a firebombing at Sachsenhausen and neo-Nazi attacks.
