Tunnel which made the "Great Escape" possible

When graphics appear, move cursor over the number (no need to click) to display an explanation of activity.

This may be one of the most amazing e-mails I've seen. The last number to 'roll over' is 16. Be sure to look and read the numbers and
click 'next' to move along.

In 1943 work had begun on 'Harry', the tunnel that allowed 76 men to escape from the German POW camp, 'Stalag III', during World War II.
This was the same tunnel made famous by the movie 'The Great Escape'. The URL below takes you to a site where one of the men, after the War, drew a diagram with explanations of each of the sections.

It's amazing how accurate the movie was, even though it couldn't possibly include all the information involved in this great engineering feat. Hope you find this as interesting as I did.

Now, there is another 'great escape', that is the escape from our sins, and God's wrath. That is through the 'blood of our Lord Jesus Christ', and through Him alone.

Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;

Excellent portrayal of the escape. And perfect scriptural analogy.
