Yeah this barracks have been under the control of the russians after the split between east and west germany, so I think it is there for that reason (plus, krampnitz is near berlin so this might have been a strategic place to be for them)
Yeah, that would make sense. If this was that era, and controlled by the USSR, then I am probably miss-reading that one letter. I think you are right about the loading. Makes sense. Anyways, nice picture. Very nice.
And your french quote is very nice.(I am taking French.) Isn't it nice to be multilingual?
Thanks, I am quite happy with this phrase (I wrote it, as a matter of fact). It is indeed nice to be multilingual, I whish I knew more languages (the only other I can speak is spanish, but I'm quite bad)
Anyway, that's nice to have helped me understand this sign, last time I had something in russian on one of my pictures, it was completely "random" (see here : [link] )
