|In de ontspanningsruimte voor de Junkers bevond zich een open haard. Wanneer Veldmaarschalk Hermann Goring, hoofd van de Luftwaffe en plaatsvervanger van Hitler, een bezoek bracht aan Vogelsang stond hij graag bij deze open haard terwijl hij verhalen vertelde over de jacht en de vliegerij, terwijl de Junkers aan zijn lippen hingen. Van deze open haard maakte ik een vergelijkingsfoto. In the relaxation room for the Junkers was a fireplace. When Field Marshall Hermann Goering, head of the Luftwaffe and Hitler's deputy, visited Vogelsang he was happy with the fireplace as he told stories about hunting and flying, while the Junkers were hanging on his every word.
