A huge chunk of the largest holiday camp ever constructed by the Nazis has been sold for £2.2m (04/2012) Block One of the Colossus of Prora built by Hitler in 1930s along the lines of Butlins in the UK will be converted into a 400-bed luxury hotel & 400 apartments. It spans nearly 3 miles of coast of the Baltic island of Ruegen. The building, the single-biggest sold in post-war Germany, had a reserve price of £700,000, but telephone bidding at a Berlin auction sent the price soaring.
