Edersee Dam
The Edersee Dam is a hydroelectric dam spanning the Eder River in northern Hesse, Germany that was built between 1908 and 1914. The dam produced a large quantity of power for Germany, so the British Royal Air Force targeted it during its strategic bombing of Nazi Germany during World War II, destroying it on 17 May 1943 as a part of Operation Chastise. However, the dam was rebuilt within months by forced labor drawn from the Atlantic Wall, and the lake would become the largest reservoir in Germany and a major summertime recreational facility.
