Additional Description

This photograph was taken 7 August 1934 at Paul von Hindenburg's original burial in the central yard of the Tannenberg Memorial, and not during his reinterrment in the new crypt on 2 October 1935.

Other photographs show that the cross in this photo was absent from the yard upon the crypt's completion. Crypt construction necessitated lowering of the entire yard by an additional 8 feet, with steps more than 50 feet deep all around, with the yard's flat area being much reduced and having a solid granite surface, and none of this is seen in this photograph. Films that match the scene in this photograph exist that show the coffin being lowered into the ground, and not placed in the crypt (which had a horizontal entrance).
