  1. That the Grossglockner is “Germany’s highest mountain” was true only during the “Anschluss,” the annexation of Austria by Nazi-Germany, from March 12, 1938 to April 27, 1945. At present the highest mountain in Germany is the Zugspitze (9,718 ft), which at its western summit is the German-Austrian border. The Grossglockner remains the highest mountain of Austria.

    • Wow, sorry about that. Hope I didn’t insult anyone with my ignorance. Never been to Germany/Austria (though I lived in Switzerland when I was a child). Did not realize this image was from the Nazi era and this mountain was actually in (Occupied) Austria.
