venir a la coupole

La Coupole, located 5 km from Saint-Omer (Nord–Pas-de-Calais), is one of the most impressive vestiges of WW2 in Europe. Through the sheer bulk of its structure, its underground installations, and the suffering of the forced labour used to build it, the place is symbolic of Nazi oppression.
