This building was the headquarters of the largest chemical company in Germany. During the war, they made extermination gas for the concentration camps. General Eisenhower would not allow it to be bombed because he wanted to make in his headquarters after the war. The family tie is Shannon's grandfather had an office here when he worked in intelligence after the war. He probably stood where Shannon and Ashton did above the clock. The only reference to the military headquarters is the glass door that says “Eisenhower Rotunda”. The statue of the naked woman was removed by Mamie Eisenhower because she didn’t want our soldiers to see it. They later found it in the basement. The building has now been repurposed for the University of Frankfurt.
